This tale of ants parading toward a picnic is “one of those rare gems capable of entertaining while it instructs” (Middlesex News).
One hundred hungry ants march off single file to sample a picnic, but when the going gets too slow, they divide into two rows of fifty, then four rows of twenty-five . . . until they take so long that the picnic is gone!
“The unexpected pairing of sophisticated art and light-hearted text lends this book particular distinction.” —Publishers Weekly
“The illustrations . . . use a pleasing palette and energetic lines to depict ants with highly individual characters.” —Horn Book
