Content: some oh-no moments, lots of laughs
Enter an enchanted world of animal friends! Each cute animal has its own pair of pretty fairy wings, and a special job to do in Misty Wood to make it a wonderful place to live.
Bella the Bunny is opening flowers to make Misty Wood as pretty as can be. There’s a surprise inside one of the bluebells – Lexi the Ladybird! Lexi is sad because she looks different to the other ladybirds. But Bella knows just how to make her feel better . . .
I liked how instead of Bella having confidence issues, like Chloe did in Chloe the Kitten, it was the tiny ladybird who Bella helped who wanted to hide from everyone. I wanted to hug her and say it really doesn't matter what you look like, its what you do that matters. With Bella's help Lexi the Ladybird accepts herself as she is, and takes advantage of her unique skill. Another super cute story from Misty Wood!
