Have you ever felt what it feels like to be an ant? This book is about two bad ants that do not listen to the queen ant and falls into the hands of a human. Do they ever get back to the ant colony? The lesson of this story is to listen to your parents and be careful in what you do and don?t do bad things.

Sara likes this book because it?s very, very adventurous and it gives her a craving for candy. Juliet?s favorite part is when they eat all the crystals and get in trouble. Sara and Juliet both think it?s great because first they were bad and then when they came back from their adventures they listened to the queen or else that means more trouble. The illustrations are very realistic because the reader can feels as if they?re experiencing an ant?s life. Juliet feels the book is funny because if they had eaten all the crystals they would have been very fat. Juliet likes it because it?s interesting because it tells about an ant?s life.

We think people who like bugs would enjoy this book.
