Isobel Finn was born in England and studied art in Paris. She has written several children's books. Isobel enjoys traveling, photography and wildlife. Isobel now makes London, England her home.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1-The ladybug of the title is so lethargic that she doesn't even know how to fly. She decides to look for a new sleeping spot, and, since her mobility is restricted, she latches on to a number of passing animals. As she soon finds out, a kangaroo is too bouncy, a monkey's incessant swinging makes her dizzy, and a tiger's roaring makes it too noisy to sleep. Finally, she thinks she's found the perfect spot-on the trunk of an elephant. However, the elephant sneezes and the ladybug is launched into the air and has to fly at last. The illustrations are done in bold, eye-catching colors, and the animals are very simply drawn and easily recognizable. The variety in the type reflects the action and movement of the animals. Children will enjoy acting out the tale as the ladybug looks for a quiet place to sleep. A natural for storytime.
