Synopsis

Read by Alexander Armstrong, What The Ladybird Heard on Holiday audiobook brings to life a whole host of noisy zoo-animal characters and even a cameo from the Queen. This audiobok also includes a read along track.

One fine day, in the middle of May,
The ladybird went on holiday.

Those two bad men, Lanky Len and Hefty Hugh, are back! They may be in the city instead of the farm, but they haven't changed their thieving ways. In fact, they're even more ambitious. They're planning to steal a monkey from the zoo and use it to pinch the Queen's crown. It's a pity for them that a certain crime-busting ladybird is holidaying in the very same city . . . and she's got a good idea that will ensure the dastardly pair won't get away with it!

Enjoy all the stories from Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks: Sharing a Shell, The Princess and the Wizard, The Rhyming Rabbit, The Singing Mermaid, Sugarlump and the Unicorn, Princess Mirror-Belle and the Dragon Pox, What the Ladybird Heard, What the Ladybird Heard Next and What the Ladybird Heard on Holiday.

Glittery, colourful, rhyming fun.

Metro

Donaldson’s jaunty rhyming story is perfectly paired with bright, busy collage pictures, liberally sprinkled with glitter.
