LoveReading View on Charlie Ant: The Cake

This is a lovely story that is well illustrated about an ant and his friend helping the Queen ant. 

Charlie, the ant and his friend, Sam must go on a mission to get a chocolate cake for the queen. Charlie and Sam liked to explore and have adventures so this is brilliant for them. Once they find a cake, they have to find a way to get it off of the kitchen counter, down onto the floor so they can move it out of the house and to the ant colony for the Queen. They then have to work out how to get the cake to the Queen before Sam eats it all. 

This is a sweet story for younger readers about friendship, working together and thinking outside the box in order to complete a mission. With illustrations of the delicious prize at the corner of every page and occasional illustrations throughout the story, this is a good book for younger readers to enjoy with parents.
