Just right for the summer – the valiant little ladybird goes on holiday and saves the day again in a new adventure by the magical Julia Donaldson, whose store of clever stories is seemingly endless. In this picture book once again illustrated by Lydia Monks in her distinctive vibrant style, the third in the series about the quietly resourceful ladybird, we follow our insect heroine to London where the Crown Jewels are under threat from those dastardly villains –
still up to no good- Lanky Len and Hefty Hugh. Lots of zoo animals to meet this time, plus a cameo from the Queen – and the corgis of course! An absolute joy to read.
