The Lovereading4Kids comment

A classic picture book in a robust board book format. The bad-tempered ladybird is too mean to share. Instead, it picks a fight with every creature it meets – even if it is a big as a rhinoceros! The journey, through simple cut away pages, captures the fury of the lady bird and how it is tamed by the experiences it goes through. In a satisfying conclusion, the lady bird returns to leaf where it picked its first fight having learnt to share.
