Bug cadets, Zube, Brill and HesitANT have a problem – and he’s big, mean, hairy and smelly. This funny and entertaining tale takes place on one day in the life of the three young ant friends as they set off to bring food back to their nest.
Danger lurks around every corner, especially when you’re just the size of a grain of rice. Follow the tiny pals through many unexpected and exciting twists and turns as they flee danger and make new friends.
Reviewers say this cute story with its colourful characters would make a great animated movie. As well as many funny moments, it’s also educational and is a great way for children to learn new words as the characters have names that describe their personality and end in ANT. The story also highlights the value of friendship and teamwork and features some interactive ideas at the end.
This fun illustrated book, in the style of Watership Down, will captivate young and old alike. It’s the perfect bedtime story for ages 7+ to read or be read to time and time again.

Dakota Douglas is a former newspaper reporter from the North East of England, following her childhood dream of being a novelist. As a kid, she read books under the bedclothes by torchlight. Now she dives under the covers, torch in hand, to scribble down conversations between her book characters in case she forgets them in the morning.She has written stories since she was about eight years old. She wrote them on a toy typewriter and her dad did the illustrations. When she wasn't pounding on her typewriter, she was smashing a tennis ball against the brick end of a block of garages beside her home. For hours on end she perfected her lob, backhand and forehand shots - all the time spinning stories in her head.
