Mr and Mrs Ladybird are a young couple who are ready to settle down. Calling on the renowned expertise of Mr weevil, estate agent de rigeur, they start the search for their dream home. In this deliriously funny marathon Mr and Mrs Ladybird view an eccentric line up of housing options: a mouldy mushroom, a snail shell, a cork afloat on the river, a crumbling sand castle, a rotten apple, an inhabited burrow, and the ultimate in chic living: the “loft style” broken bottle. will Mr and Mrs Ladybird ever find a nest?

Davide Cali’s story is a humorous take on the house hunt, made all the more hilarious by Marc Boutavant’s quirky characters and hyper-detailed illustrations that children will pore over again and again. Marc Boutavant is the award-winning author and illustrator of Around the World with Mouk. His popular character Mouk, and Boutavant’s various other children’s books, have won him accolades from audiences and fans worldwide. His books with Tate Publishing include the best-selling Around the World with Mouk and For Just One Day.
