Book Review: Bad-Tempered Ladybird by Eric Carle - Reviewed by (30 May 2013)

The Bad-tempered Ladybird written by the author who wrote The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

The story is about a Ladybird who has a bit of a attitude and always willing to pick a fight. When another Ladybird lands on his leaf he heads off to pick a fight with someone bigger and so on.

the illustrations are very similar to Hungry Caterpillar and even the page format is the same. Where Hungry Caterpillar uses days the Bad-tempered Ladybird uses time.

Not a bad book but concepts taken from his other works, however seeming he created it, I guess that's OK.
