New from the author of the Judy Moody series -- a winsome duo makes a picture-book debut Ant was getting antsy. . . .
Only a few hours left till Cricket's costume party. "What can we be for the dress-up party?" she asked her friend Honey Bee.With a little creativity and a lot of elbow grease, Ant and Honey Bee finally make a perfect, two-things-that-go-together pair of costumes for Cricket's big party. But then -- plip, plip, plip, PLIP! -- it starts to rain, and by the time they arrive, the proud pair looks more like a matching set of soggy sad sacks. Maybe, though, if they put their heads together, the quick-thinking friends can turn their mushy mess into a smashing success. What a pair! Introducing Ant and Honey Bee -- fast friends, co-costume-conspirators, and stars of a delightful new story by author Megan McDonald and illustrator G. Brian Karas.

About the Author:

Megan McDonald is the author of the popular Judy Moody series, the Beezy series, and many more children's books. She grew up with four older sisters, so hand-me-down clothes were common. "One year," she says, "my mother made pilgrim costumes for all of us at Halloween. I was youngest, so when I outgrew one pilgrim costume, there was always another to take its place. Believe it or not, some of those costumes are still around, and an entirely new generation is wearing them!"
G. Brian Karas has illustrated more than sixty-five children's picture books since 1983, including THE BONE KEEPER by Megan McDonald. He has written and illustrated three titles of his own, one of which, HOME ON THE BAYOU, was a 1997 BOSTON GLOBE--HORN BOOK Honor winner.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-3–It's getting chilly out, and Ant and Honey Bee are settling in for hibernation. But Ant isn't ready to be alone; she braves the cold to visit her pal one last time. Honey Bee is grumpy and resists all of Ant's attempts to cheer her. Eventually, Ant coaxes Honey Bee out of her bad mood as they fix a sandwich with all of the food in the hive. The two buddies then cuddle together for their long winter's nap. This story of friendship is full of puns that will make readers chuckle. The gouache, acrylic, and pencil illustrations add details for children to find (e.g., Bee's newspaper warns of “Killer Bee Attack”). The large font and simple, sometimes repetitive, words (“Ant looked out the window. Gray clouds. Gray sky. Gray trees. Gray earth.”) will allow beginning readers to read the story on their own, but it is complex enough for stronger readers to feel accomplished. A solid addition to early chapter-book collections.–Laura Stanfield, Campbell County Public Library, Ft. Thomas, KYα(c) Copyright 2013.
