Product Description

Book Description

Angelina Neatolini came from a long line of neat and tidy people. In fact, her great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather invented the garbage can. Her mother ironed her linguini and her father vacuumed the grass.  But Angelina liked to roll in the dirt whenever she could.
And like most kids, Angelina wanted a pet, but pets are messy and the Neatolini parents did not allow mess in their new house at the end of Ladybug Lane, where they recently moved from the dirty city. Enter a hard-of-hearing and very daffy fairy godmother ladybug—and magic, mess, and mayhem ensued in the house at the end of Ladybug Lane, which became anything but neat.
This magical, funny story has messages of tolerance, "it's OK to be different," and unrealistic parental pressure, and it features the spot-on whimsical art of newcomer Valeria Docampo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elise Primavera Delivers Another Great Kids Book Nov. 27 2012
By Kara Lynn Russell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Library Binding
I borrowed the Kindle version of this book from my state's digital library and I enjoyed it so much that I intend to get the paper version to share with my granddaughter. This book is cute, lighthearted, sweet, funny and absolutely charming! Pictures and text are fantastic on their own but also work together perfectly.

The brief narrative tells of the Neatolini family and their youngest member Angelina. Angelina is sweet and cute but she doesn't live up to the neatness standards of a family that vacuums the lawn. More than anything Angelina wants a pet, but her parents protest that pets are too messy. One night Angelina makes a wish that is heard by the ladybug equivalent of a fairy godmother. But although she's perfectly willing to grant Angelina's wishes, the lady bug is a bit hard of hearing. She conjures up a number of amazing things, but none of them is what Angelina wished for - or are they?

The House at the End of Lady Bug Lane is completely delightful! If you are not familiar with author Elise Primavera, this is a great place to start. Also try Auntie Claus and its sequels and for older children I recommend The Secret Order of the Gumm Street Girls. I am not familiar with illustrator Valeria Docampo but her pictures are adorable. I'll definitely look for her books in the future.
