ANTics is a fun children's fantasy in ebook and paperback format. The story is for ages seven and older about a colony of ants that live in a hidden world called InhabitANT, at the bottom of an English country garden. All the ants have names that describe their personality and end in ANT. The story centres around three little ants - ExuberANT (nicknamed Zube), BrilliANT (called Brill) and HesitANT.
When the trio set out to bring a juicy berry back to their nest they never imagine the antics in store. The pals are having fun until they stumble across their fiercest enemy – a crazy, evil spider with magic powers. They call him RepugnANT (Puggy for short), because that’s what he is. He’s got the biggest temper and worst smell of any creature in the crawly kingdom.
The little ants flee for their lives with the eight-legged beast in hot pursuit. He’s vowed to turn them into ant soup and wipe out their nest.
Can they outsmart the monster and save their nestmates?
