The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. A group of ants lives in a tree stump. As one starts to make a hole to see what’s happening outside, the ants look through the holes and see lots of different colours, and imagine all sorts of things. But when they come out they find something very different. This fun story contains clever cut-outs and bold colours in a style reminiscent of Eric Carle. (Ages 3–6)

Synopsis

It's an Orange Aardvark! by Michael Hall

Acclaimed New York Times-bestselling picture book creator Michael Hall delivers a funny and suspenseful story about colours, ants, aardvarks, and rainbows that will appeal to Lois Ehlert fans and fans of The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. Five carpenter ants at home in their tree stump hear a noise. What is it? One ant thinks it is a hungry aardvark lurking outside the stump, just waiting to eat them. One ant makes a hole in the stump to see. Orange light floods the stump-it's not an aardvark, proclaims the ant chorus. It's orange! So what is lurking outside the stump? This very funny picture book features die-cut holes on almost every page, suspenseful page turns, a wonderful surprise ending, and an introduction to a rainbow of colours.

Reviews

Get ready for some hilarity and hijinks as five ants discover what's really outside their stump home.
