Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ladybug Girl gets dressed up for Halloween in the newest hardcover addition to the New York Times bestselling series.

 

It is Halloween and Lulu must decide on a costume. Should she be Ladybug Girl or something new? She tries many different costumes, but nothing seems right. Maybe she'll think of the perfect costume as she enjoys the autumn day with her family by pumpkin picking and going on a hayride. But it isn't until Lulu and Bingo help a little girl who is lost that Lulu discovers who she was meant to be for Halloween–Ladybug Girl, of course! After all, she is Ladybug Girl and it is important to be true to yourself.

Review:

"What does one dress up as for Halloween when one spends the other 364 days of the year in a ladybug outfit? That's the question facing Lulu as she tries to come up with the perfect costume, even though it's already Halloween day. A robot costume made from a cardboard box isn't the most mobile option, and there's a critical flaw in the Chaplinesque getup she puts together next: 'A silent movie star can't ask for candy!' A trip to an apple orchard, where Lulu helps a small girl who gets lost in a corn maze, leads to an epiphany — one that probably won't surprise many of Ladybug Girl's fans. Soman's watercolors are right at home with autumn's muted hues (the slightly melancholic orchard scenes are especially lovely), helping make this thoughtful story another winner for Ladybug Girl. Ages 3 — 5." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
