Review: Anthony Ant Saves the Day by Lauren St John

Publisher: Orion Children's Books
Format: Paperback / eBook
Released: February 12th, 2015
Rating: 8.5/10

Amazon summary:

Anthony the ant is tired of being small and wishes he was big enough to be a hero. Then, one day, he climbs to the top of the tallest tree in the jungle and makes an enormous discovery! 


Anthony Ant Saves the Day is the first Early Reader book I've read - and what a good one to start with! I initially picked this one because it's about a little ant, and I do like stories about little creatures and people. Plus it's written by Lauren St John, so it must be good!

Anthony Ant is a tiny ant who often gets overlooked because of his size, but all he wants is to be a hero. With the help of the other jungle animals he realises that size really doesn't matter - it's your actions that make all the difference in the world.

This book is just lovely from beginning to end - younger readers these days are very lucky indeed. Not only is it a great little story sure to resonate with many tiny children, it's also vibrantly illustrated by Tamara Anegon. She makes Anthony Ant and his friends come alive, and they all look brilliant! Short chapters and a heartwarming story make Anthony Ant Saves the Day the perfect Early Reader title, and I'm now looking forward to reading more from this series of books.
