PreSchool-Grade 2--In this suburban adventure, a young explorer describes his experiences as he tracks an army of ants through "a bug-infested jungle," observing their progress through a magnifying glass. The insects run into some dreadful hazards on their trek--a squadron of fierce red ants, a spider, a toad, and other predators. The safari ends in the child's own backyard, where his mother is waiting with a picnic lunch for the hungry boy and the ants. Barner used cut-and-torn paper and homemade paste paper to create dense, vibrantly colored collages that cover every inch of the spreads. Proportions are maintained by including size clues--a magnifying glass, a ruler, a sneaker, and a pencil. The ants somehow manage to have expression without being anthropomorphized, and the text entertains while it informs. An appendix provides brief information about ants and the creatures they encountered during their journey. This book offers budding entomologists a grand tour of insect life in the backyard, while those who are less bug inclined will enjoy the gorgeous illustrations.--Jane Barrer, Washington Square Village Creative Steps, New York City
