Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len have a cunning plan: they’ll sneak past all the animals and steal the farmer’s fine prize cow. But they forget all about the tiniest, quietest creature on the farm—the ladybug. She has a plan of her own. 

Julia Donaldson turns her literary expertise to a farm setting, and comes up with a rollicking barnyard mystery. Lydia Monks' colorful collage illustrations go perfectly with the story for a winning combination. Readers will quack, neigh, moo, and cheer for the ladybug all the way through!

What the Ladybug Heard is a 2011 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Ten googly-eyed farm animals (cow, hen, goose, duck and others) all say just the right things (“Moo,” “cluck,” etc.) while the ladybug simply listens.
