This is rather a long book for a day-time read for the toddler...


In this quirky Valentine's Day comedy, shy Ladybird exchanges notes with handsome Dragonfly, while modest Beetle corresponds with beautiful Butterfly—or so they think! Dear 'Red', Your wings are so beautiful! I wish you were my friend. Or EVEN my valentine? From 'Blue' Love is in the garden air on Valentine's Day, but Ladybird is feeling all left out—until she opens a letter from a secret admirer. Could it really be from handsome blue Dragonfly? Ladybird is overjoyed! And who is shy Beetle writing to? All will be revealed at a magical moonlit wedding, and readers are invited! This laugh-out-loud story of amor and mistaken identity in the insect world is full of captivating miniature detail.
