Synopsis

With a cast of everyone's favourite farm animals, What the Ladybird Heard is a brilliant rhyming adventure from the stellar picture-book partnership of Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks.

Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len are two crafty robbers with a cunning plan to steal the farmer’s fine prize cow. But little do they know that the tiniest, quietest creature of all has overhead their plot, and she has a plan of her own . . .

Now available as a board book, this much-loved classic is perfect for young readers, with brilliant rhyming verse from Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo, and bright, distinctive illustrations from award-winning illustrator, Lydia Monks.

Enjoy more adventures with the clever little ladybird in What the Ladybird Heard Next, What the Ladybird Heard on Holiday and What the Ladybird Heard at the Seaside.
