Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-A rip-roaring western mystery starring anthropomorphic bugs. Ant Hill has a problem-half of its herd of ant cows is missing, and that means a shortage of the honeydew they produce. Ladybugs come to the rescue, and the perpetrators are put to work at the Milking Barn where they are sentenced to shoveling "doo." A concluding author's note explains that aphids are "ant cows" and that they "make a sweet juice, called honeydew, that ants like to eat." This information would have been more helpful in a foreword. Sneed's clever acrylic-on-paper illustrations are the book's strength. They show the ants' unique multitasking abilities and unusual poses and take full advantage of the Western atmosphere and setting.-Helen Foster James, University of California at San Diego Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Think the Old West is gone? Just check beneath the nearest juicy leaf, where you well might find ants herding aphids (aka "ant cows") and "milking" them for a sweet excretion called honeydew. From there, it's only a whoop and a holler to this britches-bustin' tale of a canny, six-legged Deputy Sheriff on the trail of a gang of rustlers. Set in the bustling, buggy burg of Ant Hill and featuring an all-insect cast decked out in fancy cowboy boots, Stetsons and other western finery, this arthropod oater takes more twists than a bee-stung bronc on its way to a climactic faceoff. As it turns out, the thieves, disguised as ladybugs, include even Deputy Harvey's own boss-but Harvey triumphs thanks to some unexpected help from a decidedly tough-looking crew of real ladybugs, led by queen beetle Maybelle. There'll be no problem corralling little dogies for this caper. (author's note) (Picture book. 6-8)
