What the Ladybird Heard
By (author) Julia Donaldson; Illustrated by Lydia Monks
With all the MOOing and HISSing, QUACKing and NEIGHing, and BAAAing and CLUCKing, the farmyard is full of noise. But when Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len hatch a plot to steal the fine prize cow, it’s the quietest animal of all who saves the day! A marvellous new rhyming tale from the creators of the best-selling “The Princess and the Wizard” and “Sharing a Shell”.
