The Grouchy Ladybug

The Grouchy Ladybug is about a ladybug who is cranky about everybody else. She never wants to listen to the other animals and never smiles.

My favorite character in the story was the cranky ladybug because every time when he saw someone he was cranky because he didn't have a friend. He didn't want to be friends with the other animals. He just wanted to be friends with the other ladybug. I think the ladybug was mean and if she was nice she would have many friends.

I would tell other kids to read this story because once the ladybug found another ladybug he wanted to be friends. They flew off together. This book is about having friends.
