Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
They flit, they fly, and they hop and jump in a parade of bugs, from the delicate painted lady butterfly to the unpopular bed bug and louse. The rollicking rhyming chant is as rowdy as some of the creepy-crawlies that romp across the pages. Bold computer generated illustrations convey all the humor of the lively text. Each bug is drawn scientifically accurate but with added details that gives each its own distinct personality. Bug lovers will giggle over the infectious verse and welcome the factual information that follows. Following on the heels of the successful Trout, Trout, Trout, (A Fish Chant), this is a sure winner. Librarians don't let this one get lost in the 595s; book talk it, read it aloud, and get it into the hands of kids who will chortle with delight. 2005, Northwood, Ages 6 to 10.
—Beverley Fahey
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-In this companion book to Trout, Trout, Trout!: A Fish Chant (NorthWord, 2004), an ant and 59 other American insects appear in a catchy chant that jumps, flits, and flies across flashy spreads. "Two-spotted Stinkbug, White-lined Sphinx./Tiger Moth, Underwing, hiding pinks./Cockroach, Earwig./Like them? Can't!/Firefly, Flower Fly, Ant, Ant, Ant!" The garishly colored digitally produced caricatures with grossly exaggerated features are not for the squeamish, but will entertain with their humor. The stinkbug gives off a green gas. The dung beetle keeps a roll of toilet paper on hand. A thrip goes waterskiing. The text and illustrations are a natural pairing for exploring the insect world. Curiosity about the odd but real names can be satisfied by short informational paragraphs at the back of the book. A lively addition for insect units.-Carolyn Janssen, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    The excitement of a top pick.

    Ant, Ant, Ant! (An Insect Chant) receives Trip Park's fun drawings as it follows up on the popular Trout, Trout, Trout! (A Fish Chant) to provide a zany set of bug drawings and facts. Yes, insect facts are included within the zany set of insect identification ¿ and Trip Park's large-size and unique color drawings are quite vivid, adding to the excitement of a top pick.
