Synopses & Reviews
A gorgeous, hardcover gift edition of the original New York Times Bestselling Ladybug Girl, celebrating imagination for every preschool child—now full of exciting extras!
When Lulu puts on her ladybug costume, she becomes Ladybug Girl—a superhero who uses her imagination to have adventures right in her own backyard. Together with Bingo, her basset hound, she proves that shes not too little to explore nature, build forts, and make her own big fun.
This deluxe gift edition of the story that started it all includes:
- a jacket that folds out into a giant poster
- punch-out paper dolls of Lulu and Bingo
- 30 reusable stickers to dress them up
- and an audio CD.
Perfect for fans of Olivia and Fancy Nancy, this special edition is a must to kick off or complete any Ladybug Girl series collection.
"Preschooler Lulu, told to amuse herself, mopes about for a bit, then finds that her ladybug costume — red tutu, wings, red polka-dot boots and a headband with antennae — helps her morph into a bigger, braver character. 'Is that rock in your way, ants?' she asks. 'I can help you! I'm Ladybug Girl!' Similarly heroic deeds follow as Lulu makes the case that, contrary to her older brother's claim, she's not little — she feels 'as big as the whole outdoors.' Husband-and-wife team Soman and Davis's first collaboration shows potential. Little girls whose confidence, ambition and dress-up collections outrun their actual ages will recognize themselves in Lulu, and parents may enjoy her, too. The characterization is believable and the visual pacing solid, and the family's basset hound, his movements echoing Lulu's, serves as a likable foil. The chatty text, however, often explains what's already shown, and the narrative perspective sometimes appears to waver between adult and child ('Lulu can't read yet, but she knows her letters. She finds a lot of L's'). Ages 4-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
