For twenty years The Grouchy Ladybug has delighted very young readers and listeners. Boldly designed pictures and a humorous text tell the story of a tiny anti-hero like no other. The Grouchy Ladybug didn't say "please" or "thank you"; it wouldn't share; it thought it was bigger and more important than anyone else; and it was always ready to pick a fight. This fast-moving story with clever die-cut pages invites children to explore the concepts of time, size, shape, and manners. They will laugh and learn from this bad-tempered braggart who met its match and became a nicer and better behaved bug. Newly reprinted from the original artwork, The Grouchy Ladybug is now more appealing than ever, and it continues to be a favorite among the young for its originality and beauty.
