A Picture Book for kids that love Animals. Winner of the Scottish Book Award 2010 (0-7 years category).

Bestselling author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Lydia Monks have teamed up for another brilliant picture book. Right in the farmyard among all the noisy animals with their MOOs! and QUACKS! and BAAs! and OINKs! lives a tiny silent ladybird. This beautiful glittery creature (little fingers will love to feel her sparkly shape) is so quiet that she hears two crafty robbers plotting to raid the farmyard. And she comes up with a very clever plan to stop them, helped by the very noisy animals all around her. A wonderful adventure with gorgeous stylised illustrations. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

What The Ladybird Heard by Julia Donaldson

'Oink!' said the cats... With all the MOOing and HISSing and BAAAing and CLUCKing, the farmyard is full of noise. 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! Spot the glittery ladybird on every page of this wonderful rhyming tale from the creators of the bestselling The Princess And The Wizard and Sharing A Shell.
