An Anty-War Story
In an ant colony called Antworld, the ants worked very hard to build a nice home for themselves. One ant was very different from the others, and his name was Douglas. All the other ants carried food in a beautiful line. When asked, the ants couldn’t explain why they were moving food before they ate it.
Douglas wondered if he could be like the other ants. He asked the Chief Ant if he could fit in with the other ants by getting food, too. But the Chief Ant told Douglas that he was destined to be a soldier because he was bigger and had bigger teeth than the other ants!
What does it mean to be a soldier? The Chief Ant told Douglas that he would carry a rifle and fight to keep the ant colony safe. Will Douglas fulfill his destiny? Will he be happy being the protector of the colony? I like the colorful, detailed pictures in this book. My favorites are the baby ants in the nursery, because they are so cute, and the ants eating a whole cupcake!
