Synopsis

With a whole host of noisy zoo-animal characters to meet and even a cameo from the Queen, What the Ladybird Heard on Holiday is a fantastic rhyming adventure from stellar picture book partnership of Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks.

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 him to pinch the Queen's crown. Unfortunately for them, they don't know 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 more adventures with the clever little ladybird in What the Ladybird Heard, What the Ladybird Heard Next and What the Ladybird Heard at the Seaside.

colourful, rhyming fun.
