My Review:

This story is one that is told in rhyme
That’s a winner for me, every time!
It concerns the ladybird who
Flies to London and visits the zoo.
She hears two thieves who are plotters
Planning to steal Monkey Joe – the rotters!

To discover what happens you’ll need
This delightful story yourself to read.
With zoo animals and the Queen’s corgis, too,
The story is action packed through and through.
The illustrations are superb, colourful and bright
And overall I believe this story really is just right!

A fun and entertaining tale children will adore
Reading once then again and again and more.
Via NetGalley I was given a copy of this book
I’m so glad I gave it more than a look
I highly recommend it to anyone who
Knows children who’ll love it, too!


“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’ve got even more ambitious. They’re planning to steal a monkey from the zoo and use it to steal 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!

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