"Flamboyant colors, zany perspectives and a neatly circular tale lead, with satisfying inevitability, to a happy outcome for all but the thieves." -"Washington"" Post ""The appealing and brightly colored collage illustrations, rhyming text, and assorted animal sounds make it a natural for individual or group readalouds."--"Booklist ""An excellent read-aloud or lap book, it's full of slapstick action, animal noises, and repeated phrases that invite participation. Donaldson's rhymed verse is both rhythmic and skillfully executed." --"Publishers Weekly," STARRED review """Low on menace and high on clever silliness, this highly readable rhyming tale will have young listeners participating in the delivery of these unexpected variations on animal sounds and examining the last scene." --"Kirkus Reviews""" "The playful rhyming text flows without stumbling and offers the opportunity to demonstrate one's finest animal sounds.

I bought this thinking that it was a board version of the original book. I should have thought something wasn't quite right after clicking to buy and seeing "Animal Noises" and "jigsaw". The board book is just a list of the noises the animals from the original story make. I can make those noises quite easily myself without wasting £5.59. Total and utter rip off and this should be stated on the product description for the board book. Very, Very disappointing.
The story inside is very clever and very entertaining of how some farmyard animals plus the ladybird outwit some thieves trying to steal the farmers prized cow.
It is a very, very entertaining tale and lots of opportunity to make animal noises and laugh at the story.
Exceptionally good and well worth adding to your young childrens book collection. I would say it's suited to preschool and key stage one children. My 7 and 4 year old loved it.
A story about how a quiet ladybird saved the prize cow form being stolen by Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len.
Early Years Teachers - This book proved to be an invaluable resource on my teaching placements. As with this well respected and loved children's author, Julia Donaldson, this is a great book with a good story line. It is so versatile and can be enjoyed by many ages. It is really easy to engage with as there are so many possible themes in the story which can be explored to a suitable depth dependent on the children's ages.
Themes: directions, animals, thieves, listening, people who help us.
- Children could draw a map of the farm labelling the buildings.
- Children could write a character profile of Lanky Len and Hefty Hugh.
- Children could create a wanted poster for Lanky Len and Hefty Hugh.
- Children could design a new outfit for the scarecrow in the farmer field.
