Product description

Spot a glittery ladybird and make your loudest animal noises in this gleeful farm rhyme. (You’ll love Lydia’s art.) Is it quiet? Something’s wrong! Julia Donaldson and quirky artist Lydia Monks have made BIG noises in the picture book world. No wonder – they’re great! But are they as loud as these farm animals? Moo! Hiss! Baa! Cluck! The barnyard is a very noisy place. So when two crooks decide to steal a prize cow, they don’t think anyone will hear them. But they’re wrong…

“Bursting with colour and verve.” Daily Telegraph

“A terrific and witty adventure.” Guardian

    A riot of animal noises

    Another fantastic book for children from Julia Donaldson. This is a simple rhyming tale tells of the quiet ladybird (with some help from his farm animals friends) that helps to stop thieves from stealing the farmer’s prize cow. With a riot of animal noises to join in with plus the hidden sparkly ladybird to find on every page, there is something to keep every young reader entertained.
