Once upon a farm lived a ladybird,
And these are the things that she saw and heard...
Those crafty robbers Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len are out of jail, and they're heading back to the farm with another cunning plan to cause trouble. They've been stealing eggs from the fat red hen, but now they're setting their sights higher and are planning to steal the fat red hen herself! Fortunately the quiet, clever ladybird is on their trail, and she and her farm animal friends have a plan of their own.
Join the cow, the goose, the horse, the sheep, the cat, and everyone's favourite ladybird in this fantastically funny farmyard caper from the stellar partnership of Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks, creators of What the Ladybird Heard. With slapstick action, animal noises, and a mysterious Snuggly Snerd bird, all read aloud by actor and comedian Alexander Armstrong, What the Ladybird Heard Next is a story you'll come back to time and time again.
