Synopsis

What The Ladybird Heard Sound Book by Julia Donaldson

Help the ladybird save the day in this magical, interactive sound book. Two crafty robbers hatch a cunning plan to steal the farmer's fine prize cow. But the quietest, tiniest creature in the farm has a plan of her own and things are going to get noisy; very noisy. With 10 amazing animal sounds, this book is a whole farmyard of fun!

Reviews

Flamboyant colors, zany perspectives and a neatly circular tale lead, with satisfying inevitability, to a happy outcome for all but the thieves. - Washington

The appealing and brightly colored collage illustrations, rhyming text, and assorted animal sounds make it a natural for individual or group readalouds. -- Booklist

Low on menace and high on clever silliness, this highly readable rhyming tale will have young listeners participating in the delivery of these unexpected variations on animal sounds and examining the last scene. -- Kirkus Reviews
