"Never stop. Never tarry.

An ant who wastes time

will never marry!"

Bart the sand ant has heard these words for as long as he can remember. Never in the history of antdom has an ant taken a day off.

Still, Bart can't help but wonder what it might be like to see what goes on out there in the big, wide world.

"They'll never let you back in!" warns his best friend, Floyd, about leaving the nest. But Bart leaves his mounds of work behind, and discovers just how important it is for an ant to find some time for himself every now and then.

Bonny Becker has written the perfect story for our hectic, overscheduled lives. Nina Laden's illustrations bring the bustling insect world to life with humor and verve.

The illustrations in this book are very good. The illustrator did a great job in expressing the emotions on the characters faces. There are also many different angles use which make the pictures more engaging. This book is also a good example of fantasy because the ant's act and talk like people.
