In “Ed and Fred Flea” by Pamela Duncan Edwards, Fred, a flea gone bad, plots to take over the other half  of the dog from Ed flea.

Being lazy prompts an adventure for a ladybug in, “The Very Lazy Ladybug” by Isobel Finn and Jack Tickle. In this story the ladybug never learned to fly because she like to sleep all day and night.
