Ant & Bee

Another literary excursion. Today we confront the disconcerting world of Ant and Bee, Termite and Pollinator united in mischief for the entertainment of wayward toddlers. Our diminutive heroes inhabit a universe of rainbows, strange lands and kind dogs, taking care en route to introduce their young readers to an improving selection of three and four letter words. Improbably slender storylines, courtesy of Angela Banner, are brought to life in enigmatic ligne clair illustrations by Bryan Ward. If you have a taste for this type of linear clarity, formal repetition and minimalism you can find out more about these modest little books by following this link. Evidence of the existence of a dedicated group of Ant and Bee obsessives can be found in the astronomical prices being charged on Amazon.
