A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month April 2017 | Bored of his diet of ants, a scheming ant-eater thinks of the all the ways he can make eating his next meal a little bit more exciting. An ant simmered in soup? A sun-dried ant? A salami-sliced ant? All of these sound potentially delicious. But not so good for the ants…and this time, they are determined not to be eaten. ~ Julia Eccleshare
