It's an Orange Aardvark! by Michael Hall

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)
~ Andrea Rayner


It's an Orange Aardvark! by Michael Hall

The ants are busy building a window when a much-feared big orange aardvark suddenly appears outside their tree. The ants can see him, with surprising results, and so can the reader. Michael Hall's witty story, charming characters and clever die-cuts lead children on a delightful journey of the imagination. Fun, accessible words encourage reading aloud, as children learn about colours in this creative, entertaining story.


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