Anteater is hungry- and he can't remember what he likes to eat! To help him solve his problem, he asks advice from other animals, but no one seems to be able to help him...not even the ants!
This delightful story is a joke from beginning to end! Each creature he meets offers Anteater dinner suggestions and the humour is developed through Anteater's expressive face and reactions to the delicacies and advice he is given. A different font is used for Anteater and the animals he speaks to, making it easy for little ones to follow who is speaking, but the language used is varied and interesting.
Children will delight in spotting the ants that are dotted about on each page, going about their business, whilst Anteater ponders the question of his next meal until he comes across their anthill. Each illustration is bold, bright, colourful and appealing.
The ending is funny- and reminds us all not to prejudge people, but to expect the unexpected! 'What Does an Anteater Eat?' is sure to be a firm favourite in classrooms and at home.
