Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Gil the ant can't figure out where he is. As he moves around in his environment, kids get a look at various objects and can make their own guesses. They will feel proud when they figure out where Gil is before he arrives at the same answer. This particular adventure takes place in the kitchen, starting in the kitchen sink. Eventually Gil makes it safely outside where he rejoins his friends. A very early reader that will appeal to Antz movie fans as well as others. The introduction describes the levels in the "Green Light Reader" series and provides some helpful tips to those working with kids. There is also a very brief blurb and photo of the illustrator. A Level 1 book. 2000, Harcourt, and $3.95. Ages 5 to 7. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-In the first book, Dad has lost his hat, Mom has lost a pin, and Pat has lost a toy frog. They look all through the house, but cannot find the missing things anywhere. When the family dog starts digging in the yard, they discover his "secret spot" and all of their possessions. Cepeda's bright, chunky illustrations portray an African-American family's amusement and surprise when they solve the mystery. In Lost!, a red ant feels water on his head and climbs up a tall pole (a straw), only to discover that he is in a sink filled with dishes. From there, he crawls around a house until, at last, he makes his way home to his friends. The computer-generated art is brightly colored and somewhat reminiscent of the animation in the movie Antz. The short, simple sentences and large-type texts are suitable for beginning readers, though both of these stories are slight and predictable and the artwork lacks the visual clues that new readers need.-Joyce Rice, Limestone Creek Elementary School, Jupiter, FL Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
