What Does an Anteater Eat?; Ross Collins

AUTHOR:  Ross Collins
PUBLISHER: Nosy Crow (Candlewick Press)
PUB. YEAR: 2019
FORMAT:  print/my shelves 
RATING - 4.5/5

Targeted for the preschool or beginning reader, this story features one hungry anteater who wakes up hungry and just can't recall what he is supposed to eat. 

Anteater begins asking the critters he meets along the way what he should eat. One critter is rude to him, a tiger in a tree says that he thinks anteater looks pretty tasty and another suggests watermelon might be a good choice.  When the anteater runs in to a anthill full of -- yes, ants, and asks the same question, what happens next is not what you'd suspect. 

Funny story with large print and just enough words on each page to tell a cute story and not frustrate a beginner reader. The illustrations were fun as well.
