Review quote

Bright, sparkling, full of humor, subterfuge and rhyming fun, this is another exceptional title from the award winning pair of Donaldson and Monks. Not only a funny tale of whimsy, it continues to show that even the smallest, quietest and most unassuming characters around us can make the biggest differences and overcome the most difficult of challenges. Themes of friendship, teamwork and communication are prevalent in this series with the fourth installment being just as strong. Expect nothing less than bold, beautiful and brilliance * Included in Askews and Holt Newsletter * What the Ladybird Heard at the Seaside is a sparkling rhyming adventure from writer Donaldson and illustrator Lydia Monks - quite literally. It features glitter on every page * Sunday Post * An instant classic * Baby Magazine *
