A colorful strawberry patch with an old river bridge is the setting for this colorful and memorable children’s book, “The Ladybug Story.” A beautiful young ladybug named Jenny becomes best friends with the handsome but restless Bartholomew, who is convinced that he will find adventure and happiness somewhere in the mysterious neighboring strawberry patch. Because Jenny is loyal and cares for Bartholomew, she reluctantly agrees to leave the security of her home and follows him into a new world. Trouble quickly ensues in their new surroundings as Jenny falls prey to the dreaded Sonja, a mesmerizing large, black spider who prowls the neighboring patches looking for anyone who is out at nightfall. All ends well and Bartholomew and Jenny learn a couple of lessons that are important for all children to know. Never make decisions in life because someone else wants you to, especially if you know it to be wrong. And, of course, the most important lesson… There is no place like home.
