Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judith Gravitz
In Most's inimitable style, animal names taken literally furnish visual and verbal humor. Dissecting the name antlion, Most provides factual information about the habitats, eating habits, and physical characteristics of these large insects. The charm of the book is Most's affection for silliness when he asks, "I wonder how many antlions it would take to roar like a lion?" The book's layout includes a drawing of the actual creature, while the accompanying full-page illustration is full of Most visual play-the antlion portrayed with a mane.
