What the Ladybird Heard Next – Julia Donaldson & Lydia Monks


15th June 2016 | by Rachael Rogan

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 – a much anticipated sequel to the hugely successful What the Ladybird Heard, which has sold over a million copies worldwide.

Children will love the gorgeously glittery eye-catching cover, and spotting the sparkly ladybird on every page. With slapstick action, animal noises, and a mysterious Snuggly Snerd bird, What the Ladybird Heard Next is destined to become yet another classic in the Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks collection.
