I really like 'Two Bad Ants' by Chris Van Allsburg. This book has a lot of detail in the writing and the pictures.In my opinion it is a good book for everybody.It is a fantasy book.The two ants in this book were very selfish when they stayed behind and ate all the sugar.

The Two Bad Ants by Chris Van Allsburg I think this book is good because the ants have a lot of adventures with the house stuff. It¿s cool when They shot out of the outlet in the event they gave weird stuff to the queen ant she loved it so they got more . At the end there was a big thing in the adventures. Then they absents there family of ants but they did care that they were gone. Read the book it¿s a suprise.

This is one of my all time favorite children's books. The lesson that these two ants learn is very heartwarming. Definitely worth reading and owning for children and adults!

A child get's to experience the world through the eyes of two mischevious ants. The moral of the story is worth reading again & again too.
