"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. Praise for What the Ladybird Heard - over half a million copies sold worldwide to date: "Bursting with colour and verve." --Daily Telegraph "A terrific and witty adventure." --The Guardian "Donaldson's trademark rhyming couplets bounce along and are perfectly complemented by Lydia Monks's bright and sparkly illustrations." --Mail on Sunday
