The Bad-tempered Ladybird

Eric Carle

About the book


A much-loved classic from the creator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar

The bad-tempered ladybird picks a fight with every animal it meets but after a whole day of being bad-tempered, the ladybird realises that life is much better when you're kind! With its die-cut pages to show the rising and falling sun, this is a beautifully illustrated story that teaches children about telling the time, size and the importance of sharing.
