Son says: the start of the book makes me feel all excited like my first day at football. I enjoyed the spying part as I loved having a real challenge up ahead of me to spot the things. It makes me quite curious about what's going to happen next and when I go to sleep I have something exciting to think about what happens next and the other things Katherina might have added on. I rate it 100 out of ten!!!
Combining the detail of the best of Richard Scarry's 'Busy, Busy World' with Katherina's unique and beautiful style it is an utterly captivating read that will keep small hands busy for hours searching for details and animals. It is a riot of colour and invention. It is also a pleasing large square book, and in small or large hands feels extremely generous!
I would suggest two copies, one for your favourite child, one for yourself... as I keep returning to this book to marvel at Katherina's inventiveness. As a fellow artist I am as green as one of her frogs with envy at her storytelling and art!
Katherina Manolessou is a modern master of Children's books.
Look for Ladybird in Plant City has now officially joined our special bookcase of very precious and treasured books, well worth recommending!
My little boy already loves Zoom Zoom Zoom and Mummy & Me by the same author, but I suspect this will be a favourite for a long time to come.
On each page the detective duo hunt for the ladybird, who is hidden amongst luscious greenery, populated by hundreds of other funny animals. It's a jolly bustley alluring city.
There's so much happening on every page that each time you find something new for your eyes to gobble. Katherina also uses words to guide you to other characters and their antics on the way to finding the ladybird. So even if it's hard to spot at first, you massively enjoy the trip!
The detectives are very endearing too.
It's a gorgeous book.
It's a big book, bursting with the delicious animal characters from Katherina Manolessou's universe! Some we recognise from her earlier books. Kids from toddlers to primary school age will love to spot the many different animals such as a Green hippo on a Ferris wheel and other fantastic details!
My kids 5 and 8 both thoroughly enjoyed the book! It would make a great Christmas gift!
