Bestselling author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Lydia Monks have teamed up for another brilliant picture book. Right in the farmyard among all the noisy animals with their MOOs! and QUACKS! and BAAs! and OINKs! lives a tiny silent ladybird. This beautiful glittery creature (little fingers will love to feel her sparkly shape) is so quiet that she hears two crafty robbers plotting to raid the farmyard. And she comes up with a very clever plan to stop them, helped by the very noisy animals all around her. A wonderful adventure with gorgeous stylised illustrations.
Celebrate ten years of farmyard fun with this special anniversary edition of Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks' bestselling picture book What the Ladybird Heard..And the ladybird said never a word. But the ladybird saw, And the ladybird heard . . .
When the ladybird overhears Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len planning to steal the farmer's fine prize cow, it's up to her - the smallest, quietest creature on the farm - to stop the thieves . . . This rhyming farmyard adventure features two bungling robbers, one clever little ladybird - and lots of animal noises!
Join in the fun with the What the Ladybird Heard 10th Anniversary Edition. With bright, distinctive artwork and glitter on every page, this special edition of the family-favourite story also features bonus material, including a letter from author Julia Donaldson and never-before-seen pictures from the illustrator Lydia Monks' sketchbook.
