A fun, interactive, lift-the-flap book based on the bestselling picture books What the Ladybird Heard and What the Ladybird Heard Next by author of The Gruffalo, Julia Donaldson, and star illustrator Lydia Monks.
Julia Donaldson is the outrageously talented, prize-winning author of the world's best-loved picture books, and was the 2011-2013 UK Children's Laureate. Her books include Sharing a Shell, The Paper Dolls and the modern classic The Gruffalo, which has sold over 13.5 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over sixty-five languages. Julia also writes fiction as well as poems, plays and songs and her brilliant live children's shows are always in demand. Julia and her husband Malcolm live in Sussex. Lydia Monks is one of the most original picture book artists working today. Her distinctive use of colour and collage has won her critical acclaim and several awards, including the Smarties Prize. Her collaborations with Julia Donaldson include The Singing Mermaid, the Princess Mirror-belle books, Sugarlump and the Unicorn, and the phenomenally successful What the Ladybird Heard. Lydia lives in Sheffield.
