What the Ladybird Heard Next

What the Ladybird Heard Next

Illustrated by Lydia Monks

The little spotty ladybird
Told the animals what she’d heard:
“Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len
Are planning to steal the fat red hen!”

“Donaldson’s trademark rhyming couplets bounce along and are perfectly complemented by Lydia Monks’s bright and sparkly illustrations.” Mail on Sunday

We launched this book at the Hackney City Farm, surrounded by real farmyard animals. Here is a picture taken there of Lydia and me with editor Hannah Ray and designer Chris Inns.

There is also a play version of the story, with tips for staging your own production.
