Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Joone likes the color orange, ice-cream sandwiches, and playing outside. She lives in a yurt with her grandfather and her pet turtle, Dr. Chin, who rides around on her hat. Grandpa teaches Joone something new every day. Sometimes Joone teaches him something new, too, like how to make a daisy chain. Together they enjoy life’s small joys—sunsets, tree houses, and most of all, each other.
 
Emily Kate Moon’s debut picture book is a charming tribute to the outdoors and a tender portrait of a grandfather and granddaughter’s loving relationship. Fans of Ladybug Girl, Freckleface Strawberry, and even Dora the Explorer will fall in love with this independent, free-spirited little girl.

Review:

"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.)

Synopsis:

The first hardcover picture book in the New York Times bestselling Ladybug Girl series, which encourages independence and creative play, and celebrates imagination for every preschool child!

 

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. Her dog, Bingo the basset hound, is always by her side and the two prove that they are not too little to explore nature, build forts, and make their own big fun.

 

For fans of Fancy Nancy and Toot and Puddle, the Ladybug Girl series honors individuality, creativity, and a love of the outdoors!
