ALGERNON - BY PATRICIA MORAN - ALGERNON IS A PRECOCIOUS ANTEATER WITH A LOVE OF CHOCOLATE COVERED ANTS.
Algernon is an anteater, but he is a very ingenious one...He not only loves ants but especially chocolate covered ones. So, to find a supply of his new favorite food, he not only learns to read and to stand up tall, and to consequently join the circus!
This children's book is delightful, with a refreshing commentary describing Algernon's thoughts and his precocious stream-of-consciousness asides...
Meet Algernon the Anteater...you'll love him!
I was hesitant about what could be gained by reading about an anteater. They aren’t such pleasant-looking creatures, and I hate ants. But it was recommended to me, and I fell in love with Algernon on the first page. It has turned into the book most requested by my children at bedtime.
