Ant and Honey Bee
A Pair of Friends at Halloween

author: Megan McDonald
illustrator: G. Brian Karas

series name:
Candlewick Sparks

Only a few hours left till Cricket's costume party. "What can we be for the dress-up party?" she asked her friend Honey Bee. With a little creativity and a lot of elbow grease, Ant and Honey Bee finally make a perfect, two-things-that-go-together pair of costumes for Cricket's big party. But then — plip, plip, plip, PLIP! — it starts to rain, and by the time they arrive, the proud pair looks more like a matching set of soggy sad sacks. Maybe, though, if they put their heads together, the quick-thinking friends can turn their mushy mess into a smashing success. What a pair! Introducing Ant and Honey Bee — fast friends, co-costume-conspirators, and stars of a delightful story by author Megan McDonald and illustrator G. Brian Karas.
