Lucy Ladybird Synopsis

Lucy Ladybird doesn't belong anywhere - she has no spots! Follow her as she goes on a journey through the seasons, being given different coloured spots by her beautiful friends. Eventually, when she has four spots, she learns that being different is no bad thing... as a huge fold-out surprise reveals all the other ladybirds want multi-coloured spots too!

Lucy Ladybird Press Reviews

A gorgeous visual treat that takes you through the seasons, while reinforcing a positive message to little readers about giving, sharing and accepting. * Parents in touch * 'The story is simple, and what really makes the book special are the gorgeous, bright illustrations.' * Jennifers Little World * 'The art work is simply gorgeous. Cute, colourful and full of little things for children to look for.' * Being Mrs C * 'a superb little book with a fantastic fold-out that younger readers will gasp in awe at' * Read it Daddy * 'a gorgeous, fun-filled corker of a book' * Story Seekers UK * 'audiences of three to five year olds immediately warmed to Lucy's plight and delighted in the outcome of her flight through summer, autumn, winter and spring, clapping and demanding immediate re-readings.' * Red Reading Hub * 'A soul-warming read' * Nayu's Reading Corner * a lovely book to share on any day you're feeling blue. A sweet tale about a ladybird who doesn't fit in because she has no spots, this story is full of kindness and colour, with a dazzling final spread that will brighten the gloomiest of days. * * The book is wonderfully illustrated, very colourful and the fold-out page at the end is lovely. * Bookapoet * We loved this book, my 3 year old was enchanted all the way through; she just couldn't understand why they were so mean to lovely Lucy! She is totally enthralled by Ladybirds because of a certain Fairy and Elf cartoon so this book went down a treat and the beautiful fold out at the end ensured she could look at it by herself for a while after reading it to her. -- Mariana * The Guardian *
