Ant and Honey Bee

By Megan McDonald
Illustrated by G. Brian Karas

The funny, endearing insect pals find a way to be more than fair-weather friends in a second early chapter book from Megan McDonald and G. Brian Karas.

Brrrr! The leaves are off the trees, and frost is on the ground. It’s time for bugs to hunker down and hide out for the winter. But Ant isn’t ready to hunker down. Ant isn’t ready to be all by herself for months on end. The thought of a long chilly season without her best friend, Honey Bee, is enough to make Ant shiver with dread. Can Ant brave the cold for one last surprise visit before the snow flies? And will Honey Bee welcome an interruption of her peace and quiet? The author of the Judy Moody series teams up again with award-winning illustrator G. Brian Karas to show that true friends can weather whatever comes their way — even if one is feeling antsy and the other has blissful hibernation in mind.

  • By the creator of the popular and best-selling Judy Moody, Stink, and Sisters Club series.
  • Ant and Honey Bee join the ranks of memorable pairs that populate the easy reader shelves in bookstores and libraries, refl ecting the ups and downs, the trials and triumphs of friendship.
  • A 6 x9 easy to read book for newly independent readers, which will become a Candlewick Spark in paperback.
