Synopsis

What the Ladybird Heard Read and Play Farm by Julia Donaldson

Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len have a cunning plan to steal the farmer's fine prize cow. But the tiniest, quietest creature on the farm has a plan of her own - and now YOU can help her save the day! What the Ladybird Heard Read and Play Farm is an ingenious all-in-one format and features a large removeable fold-out farm play mat along with chunky press-out play pieces, plus the bestselling original picture book by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks! Play along as you read the story, or use the pieces to create a new one of your own. Hours of interactive storytelling fun - with no cutting or gluing required. Praise for What the Ladybird Heard: '(A) lovely witty book. Monks's colourful, collaged drawings are as bright as the farmyard is noisy.' - Financial Times '...a terrific and witty adventure.' - Guardian 'This is a superb book to read aloud, with lots of animal sounds for children to join in, a jaunty rhyme and bright, bold illustrations.' - Daily Mail 'Bursting with colour and verve, the rhyming verse bounces along.' - The Telegraph
