Storybooks for School Children

Most of Gladys Peto's books were aimed at school children, and although many different titles were published, often whole stories and colour plates were reproduced from her previous books.  Occasionally, a book containing entirely new material was published; The Four-Leaved Clover was one of them.

These books were published by John F. Shaw & Co. Ltd., and were written solely by Gladys Peto.  They contained either four or eight colour plates, and were profusely illustrated with black and white line drawings.
