I’m Going to Eat This Ant

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Anteater is hungry, but he’s pretty tired of licking up nasty biting ants with his twirly tongue. He’d so much rather have them smothered in mint sauce or squished in a sausage, smoked or sautéed. Unfortunately, while he’s fantasising about all the delicious options, the ants have been busy…

The expressions on Chris Naylor-Ballesteros’ Anteater are hilarious, and very reminiscent of Jon Klassen’s creatures in I Want My Hat Back. The illustration is very stylish, but also incredibly child-friendly, and you’ll be rooting for the hungry Anteater from the start. A fabulous, funny book that also celebrates food.
