Overview

What a pair! From the creator of the Judy Moody and Stink series comes a charming duo with a most ingenious costume approach for Halloween.

Ant is getting antsy. Only a few hours till trick-or-treat, and she and Honey Bee don’t have their costumes figured out. Maybe they should go as a pair! With a burst of creativity and hard work, they make a two-things-that-go-together pair of cardboard costumes just in time. But outside the night turns rainy and windy, and soon the proud duo have dissolved into a set of soggy sad sacks. Can the quick-thinking friends turn their mushy problem into a smashing success? Best-selling author Megan McDonald gives readers a taste of the comical chatter that occurs between old friends wrapped up in a shared project. G. Brian Karas brings the winning pair to life with a deft hand and an expressive, winsome line.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Childlike and sympathetic, the characters’ antics and conversations will have broad appeal." — BOOKLIST — Quote

"Filled with puns and lighthearted jokes. . . .Children will enjoy reading about how friendships can help them to survive any disaster." — SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL — Quote

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
While this is a Halloween story, it can be enjoyed by readers at any time of the year. Ant and Bee are great friends who have been living together for years. Readers know this because they talk about wearing pilgrim costumes for the last two Halloweens. Ant is antsy and wants something different this year. She searches the house looking for ideas—her plan is for them to trick-or-treat as a team. Finally she comes up with a great idea—they will be a washer and a dryer. It is a lot of work making the costumes, but they are really pleased with the outcome. Unfortunately, when they head out they get mistaken for a pair of dice, computers, ice cubes, but never a washer and dryer. Then it rains and their costumes are ruined. They head for Cricket's house and when he asks what they are the duo comes up with the perfect answer. The banter between the two friends is delightful. The illustrations by Karas are amusing and the inside cover and jacket feature a honeycomb background in shades of yellow. Ant and Bee are a delightful pair of characters who undoubtedly will appear in more chapter books. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
