This is such a perfect book for going back to school time as small children find themselves in a classroom full of disparate personalities and temperaments – many of them for the first time.

Tulip and her ladybird friends live in the flowers and play in the sunshine sipping honeydew while Brutus and the stinkbug gang hang out in the undergrowth and muddy patches.  There is never any combined play with these two bug groups.

But when a storm hits and completely disrupts their patch of garden it’s a case for all mini-beasts on deck when a danger flies overhead. Suddenly it seems that teamwork and cooperation are a much better option for all concerned.

So it is with those little ones who are just navigating new situations and relationships and what better way to demonstrate the value of working together and building friendships than with the power of a delightful picture book?

Ledden has created a simple but effective text and as usual Andrew Plant’s illustrations are stunning and joyous.

Highly recommended for little ones from around 3 year upwards.
