Because she sleeps all day and all night, the Very Lazy Ladybird doesn't know how to fly. One day, she wants to sleep somewhere else, but what can she do if she can't fly? So she hops on to the kangaroo – but that is too bouncy. Then she hops on to the tiger – but that is too noisy. Finally she hops on to the elephant's trunk, where she is sure it would be nice to rest.
