One Mean Ant with Fly and Flea

By Arthur Yorinks
Illustrated by Sergio Ruzzier

In a sidesplitting sequel to One Mean Ant, comedic masters Arthur Yorinks and Sergio Ruzzier set loose a fugitive from the flea circus.

Ant and Fly are back! And this time they’re joined by Flea, newly escaped from the flea circus. Our mean Ant, the meanest ant there ever was, doesn’t think much of the tiny, annoying Flea, until Flea’s wits get them out of one sticky situation and . . . straight into another. Ant’s famous temper can’t save them now. The bugs are truly stuck with one another! Author Arthur Yorinks and illustrator Sergio Ruzzier return for the second story in a planned trilogy that introduces a new insect in each book. Picking up where the last tale left off, the text crackles with snappy banter and silly wordplay, while expressive illustrations capture all the entomological action. At heart an ode to the small but mighty, this zany sequel will deliver big laughs for the read-aloud crowd.

  • This laugh-out-loud sequel to One Mean Ant, the first in the trilogy, sees Ant and Fly make a new friend in their adventures
  • Arthur Yorinks' witty text and Sergio Ruzzier's expressive illustrations make this a great choice for read-aloud time with parents and teachers
  • A rolicking adventure with comedy, drama, and friendship against all odds
