Summary

A brilliantly funny farmyard adventure, perfect for listening to at home, in the car, at bedtime - or any time at all!

The ladybird said never a word.
But the ladybird saw,
And the ladybird heard....

Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len are two crafty robbers with a cunning plan to steal the farmer’s fine prize cow. But little do they know that the tiniest, quietest creature of all has overhead their plot, and she has a plan of her own.... 

What the Ladybird Heard is a fantastically funny story from the stellar partnership of Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks. With brilliant rhyming verse read by Alexander Armstrong, this much-loved modern classic is perfect story for listening to together. This audio edition of the story features a read-along track and a song for lots of farmyard fun.
