Booklist - 07/01/2019 After waking from a nap, an anteater finds that he’s forgotten what he eats, and so he consults other jungle animals in this zany turn on the Little Red Hen. A sloth, draped over a limb, says he’s too busy to respond. A python, whose long body—containing several visible digesting lumps—festoons itself across the page, advises the anteater to chew his food. A hungry-looking crocodile offers a dead fish from between her wide-open jaws, and a leopard licks her lips while telling the anteater that he looks very tasty. Every double-page spread is backgrounded by a solid shade of pastel reflecting the mood of the scene, with a soft beige highlighting the lazy sloth and a screaming red warning of the dangerous leopard. Collins’ watercolor and charcoal illustrations present simple, cartoonish scenes suitable for the youngest readers. Ants appear on every spread, increasing in number by one per page, but the dopey-looking protagonist is oblivious to them. Comical from start to finish, with a screamingly funny ending. - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
