The Garden Gang was originally a series of 14 books written by Jayne Fisher. They were published by Ladybird and each book contained two stories of fruit and vegetables with human characteristics going about there lives. Imagine pitching that these days? Nevertheless we loved them, which one was your favourite Garden Gang book.
1. Wee Willie Water Melon and Betty Beetroot
Who would have thought a Watermelon and a Beetroot could look so cute and get on so well! We really believed these characters were real!
2. Penelope Strawberry and Roger Radish
Strawberry and Radish go really well together in the Garden Gang books, but I wonder if anyone has tried that combination in real life? Not that you’d want eat these adorable characters!
3. Percival Pea and Polly Pomegranate
Pomegranates were a bit exotic for some in the 80s, but we used to love to pick the tasty seeds out with a toothpick. Not sure Polly would enjoy that treatment!
