Look For Ladybird in Plant City Launch Party

Katherina Manolessou will be here to launch her new Frances Lincoln picture book Look For Ladybird in Plant City on Friday 1st September, 7-9pm!

Daisy's pet Ladybird goes missing, so she visits super-sleuth Basil, the best detective in Plant City. Can he help her find Ladybird? Follow Daisy and Basil as they look for Ladybird all over Plant City. Is he in the museum, the fun fair, the train station, the school, the concert or the restaurant? 

The first in a series of search-and-find books by Katherina, Look For Ladybird in Plant City (or LFLIPC, as the cool kids like to say), is a beautifully illustrated barrel of fun. The intricately detailed double page spreads provide kids with hours of detective work as they try to track down Ladybird, and sight gags abound amidst the lush illustrative work, adding another layer of enjoyment.

With a successful illustration career already under her belt, Katherina is something of a rising star in the children's book world, and we've been impressed with the interplay of design and colour in both her commercial and children's work. So we're very pleased to be able to host her for the launch of Look For Ladybird in Plant City on Friday 1st September, 7-9pm, when Katherina will be here to sign and chat and generally have a celebratory time!
