Andy J. Smith thought about careers as a Walrus Wrangler, Intergalactic Spy, and Ghost Hunter but they didn't pan out. So Andy thought he'd try drawing silly pictures for a living. It turned out to be a great choice! Before getting into illustration, Andy worked on several graphic novels and now has added picture book illustrations to his portfolio. He promises there will be many more books!

Review:

Cartoon-style illustrations in a muted, moody palette are organized sequentially in multiple panels, with speech balloons in brighter colors and a jazzy typeface, augmented by witty details of the insects' anthropomorphic world. The droll, rhyming text offers additional humor in a punchy, rap style that begs to be read aloud. Though the parable is handled lightheartedly, it cleverly conveys all the essential elements of the story in a memorable way that children will enjoy. -- Kirkus Reveiws
