"The easy-to-follow narrative keeps readers connected to the unfolding mystery .... Manolessou stuffs her brightly colored cartoons with mini-dramas and humorous details to pique readers’ interest, creating a full sense of Daisy and Basil’s miniature world."
 
"A simple plot with lots to look at makes this a great choice for pastime reading."
"Sneaky visual jokes abound in the seek-and-find pages of 'Look for Ladybug in Plant City' (Frances Lincoln Children's Books, 31 pages, $19.99), a detective caper of sorts for 3- to 7-year-olds. The putative story follows Daisy and Basil, a striped rabbit and spotted lizard, as they hunt through stylish, crowded scenes for a pet ladybug gone AWOL. The real action, though, is in the young reader's careful study of each bright, merry tableau. The ladybug is one of scores of creatures to be spied out. Poring over the pictures, children will also try to locate 'twelve masked burglars,' a 'cycling koala' and a 'spider on a balloon.'"
