    1. ANTics is a book for children ages seven and older. This tale features the story of three young ants on the run, trying to escape a crazy, smelly spider who intends to turn the three ants into ant soup. This book is designed to teach children the importance of teamwork and friendship. It also does a fantastic job of teaching about the habits and lives of ants. A good and adventurous read for both children and adults.

    2. Review 7*******I was given a copy of this book by the author in return for an honest review.I loved this book!ExuberANT (Zube for short), BrilliANT (Brill) and HesitANT are fantastic characters! I loved them! Their antics made me grin! Zube has a quick wit, and a sharp mind. Brill is simply brilliant, and usually comes up with a solution for any problem. HesitANT is the smallest ant, but I think he is the bravest. Their nemesis is in the form of a spider called RepugnANT (called Puggy by Zube). [...]

    3. Eleven-year-old, Alex, wrote this review with some grammar edits from Tammy.When my mom first talked about reviewing this book I didn’t think I’d like it. It sounded very “little-kid” to me. At the start of the story, Zube crosses the Forbidden QuadrANT and risks being crushed by “Two Legs” and I was hooked. The Ant characters are fun!The bad guy is named RepugnANT and he’s a spider. I hate spiders. They freak me out. The Ants hate spiders too but that’s because the spider wants [...]

    4. The ANTics is a an outstanding story with adventures of three ants, living in a garden with other crawly insects. They not only interact with insects of the garden but people (two legs) they call them.Insects threaten them in the garden. Two legs threaten them crossing the patio the "Forbidden QuadrAnt." The story is fun to read. The story has a lot of energy, I found my self oohing and awing at times because of the excitement unfolding.The book is written very descriptive, if pictures were adde [...]

    5. In the Fairweather's garden, under the apple tree is a hidden world – InhabitANT – home to a colony of ants.One of the OccupANT's, Zube (short for ExuberANT) is late to meet his friend, BrilliANT and takes his life in his hands to cross The Forbidden Quadrant (the patio to Two Legs like you and me). He barely survives a brush with a broom, then an encounter with a soldier ant – SergeANT 33 –guarding the nest. Once she recognises him she warns him of yet another threat – the colony's gr [...]

    6. This book was reviewed by Lee Ashford for Reader's Favorite.“ANTics” by Dakota Douglas is a charming story about life in InhabitANT, as experienced and related to us by three young cadets, ExuberANT (Zube), BrilliANT (Brill) and HesitANT (no nickname). On a food gathering expedition these three young friends were ambushed by the horrible, ferocious, and stinky spider, RepugnANT, otherwise known as “Puggy”… but not to his face. Their journey is filled with excitement, sometimes aided by [...]

    7. This is a really cool story about a kingdom of ant whose inhavitANTS have the most creative names I have ever seen. This intriguing and fun story is quite refreshing, and a cute concept for the children’s market. ANTics is a well-done tale that will enchant boys and girls in elementary school and some older kids too. ANTics is a great written work that will teach love friendship and unity to our kids. These are values that many children don’t have these days when parents don’t have the tim [...]

    8. The play on the word ANT is very clever. The ants live in InhabitANT. Inhabitants are HesitANT, EXUBERant, and BrilliANT, just to name a few.The story is a fun adventure for children to read. The ants are very much alike families that deal with similar issues as human beings. In this story, the biggest challenge for the ants is foraging food for InhabitANT, without getting killed by humans, animals, or bullies in their own environment.While the book is not age coded, and because of its length, c [...]

    9. Everyone knows that ants are everywhere; they are industrious, clever, work as a team and live in anthills, however, have you ever really thought what life is like for them?ANTics is a brilliant adventure story which will capture your imagination and ensure that you never look at ants in the same way again.Set in a world literally at your feet, ant cadets Zube [ExuberANT] and Brill [BrilliANT] decide to try and pass their foraging flag and they agree to take the timid HesitANT with them.However, [...]

    10. When asked to review a book, I never know what to expect, but had to smile along with this story. It is a delightful, fun story with many inlaid lessons for children (and maybe adults too). I would think that 7+ would enjoy the 'antics' within the tale, which was well written with good characters.

    11. Aptly named, ANTics is the story of a boisterous trio of ANTs led by the ExuberANT, ‘Zube’ and his two sidekicks: the BrilliANT ‘Brill’ and the unlikely paragon of bravery, HesitANT. Together they embark on escapades, dangerous and bold.It’s a great read to share secrets of the world of ants with children — at least those who don’t like spiders!

    12. What a delightful story for youngsters. The play on words is clever, and there is enough adventure to keep you interested. Having just written a book about ants, I find it amazing how authors can look at the same subject from such different perspectives.

    13. Delightful tale of the make believe life of ants and the trials and tribulations they face. Very rich in detail and energy.

    14. Adorable. This quaint story of several ants and their bug/wildlife friends takes word play to the next level. The biology included added a delightful "extra layer" to the adventures the three main-character ants and their nemesis. While, there were aspects of this story that were a bit "disjointed," overall, kids from 2nd to 5th grade would benefit from the vocabulary and moral lessons included in this book.

    15. A Delightful Children's story!, April 13, 2013Reviewed by Lilian GafniANTics is a delightful tale for children 7+, of a colony of ANTs in the forest that kept me reading to learn of the fate of three small ANTs. The colony of ANTs lived in InhabitANT lane under a tree, with the trio of friends, Zube, short for ExuberANT, his smart friend called Brill from BrilliANT and the little cadet named HesitANT. On his way to meet his friend Brill, Zube has to cross in a hurry the forbidden QuadrANT where [...]

    16. A Review of ANTics, by Dakota Douglas. A Story that Goes Beyond…Yesterday I finished reading ANTics, a lovely story written by Dakota Douglas. During my reading I found myself immersed in a huge garden, maybe not so huge for us humans, but enormous for the tiny habitANTS of InhabitANT, a colony of lovely ants. I won’t tell you the story, because I want you and your kids to read it.Instead I can tell you that ANTics is the kind of story that children should be reading in schools and at home. [...]

    17. ANTics is a charming story about a colony of ants who live in inhabitANT, and revolves around a trio of young ants who eager to win their foraging flag set out on a hunting and foraging mission in order to bring back food for their colony. I love the three little scouts Zube (ExhuberANT) and his pals BrilliANT and HesitANT, they are really endearing with their human qualities and school boy mannerisms. In fact they remind me of my son when he was a LOT younger!Set in an English country garden, t [...]

    18. ANTics is an adventure fantasy in the classic style specifically aimed at younger readers. It has a quest, heroic deeds of derring-do, an evil nemesis with seemingly magical powers and enough action to keep even the most demanding of young readers entertained. All this is set in, and around, an ant colony at the bottom of an English country garden.This story is very cleverly written and never underestimates the intelligence and sophistication of its target audience. From the point of view of a c [...]

    19. Antics by Dakota Douglas is a wonderful tale about three young ants who leave their nest on a foraging expedition. The trio, Zube, Brill and HesitANT, manage to escape the wicked spider, RepungnANT’s, (nicknamed Puggy) web only to find themselves battling Mrs Fairweather’s vacuum cleaner and learning about the wonders of other human inventions. The adventure continues and the young ants find themselves floating down the river with the spider close behind. They cleverly use their wits and out [...]

    20. EnchANTing: ANTics by Dakota DouglasANTics is a story about 3 ants, BrillANT, ExuberANT and Hesitant and their adventures as they attempt to defeat Puggy, the spider.The story is very easy going to read and flows in a way that is appropriate for children from about age 7 upwards. (I am not by any means an expert on this but I think this is around about the right age!)The quirky features of the story like the names of the ants and their home InhabitANT are wonderful and are a brilliant way for ch [...]

    21. ANTics is a book for children years 7 plus. I struggled to decide if this book would be suitable for that age group at first because of big words like “Exuberant” “Repugnant” etc. Of course this makes the book fun for a wider age group and for parents who may be reading this to their child as a bed time story and I don’t think a young child would mind too much, it’d just be a fun name for a characterTics follows an ant colony called InhabitANT and three little ants who go off on an a [...]

    22. “ANTics” by Dakota Douglas is a wonderful book which has successfully been geared for its intended audience of children between the ages of 7 and 11 regardless of whether they’re a boy or a girl. The book deals with serious topics which directly affects the daily lives of these children.Having been a Sociology major in college I love the sociological and psychological mapping of these problems unto a society of ANTs which made learning how to deal with problems easier for the book’s youn [...]

    24. ANTicipating the sequel!With some trepidation, I downloaded the kindle version of this for my seven year old son who is, like most seven year old boys, impatient with any book that does not grab him immediately. He wants lots of action, excitement and believable characters. I want that too, but also something that will stretch him emotionally and academically and won't send me to sleep when we're reading together!I needn't have worried. Yes, as reviewers have already said, the book is very well [...]

    25. Overall this is a great children's book!Description: Three friendly ants set out on a expedition to find food for their colony. They meet some strangers who are nice like a pleasant worm and a helpful butterfly but also some strangers who are evil like the spider Puggy who wishes to eat them. They encourage each other and work together to accomplish impossible tasks and find their way home safely.In Short: This book is about the journey of a group of 3 ants with their own unique personalities. I [...]

    26. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.It's a while since I read a children's book, and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed this one. The story itself deserves a strong five stars, however some editing issues lose it marks. I love the author's imagination in creating names for the ants which all end in ANT: such as DominANT, BrilliANT, HesitANT you get the gist. This story seems to me to be an excellent one for readers moving onto full text books from picture books. Th [...]

    27. I loved reading ANTics! As an adult, I found it quick paced and full of adrenal rushing moments. As a secondary teacher of English Literature, I think this book will be a perfect fit for children grades 3 - 5, especially adventurous boys. All too often, and quite unfortunately, children matriculate into middle schools and they are reading below grade level. There are many reasons that this happens, but there is one specific reason which I feel Douglas' book will help alleviate. Often young reade [...]

    28. I'm really impressed with Douglas's marketing and networking. She really knows how to get her work out there. (Thanks for the copy!) Unfortunately, I could only make it through two chapters. I thought the names might have been clever without the caps. (Example: BrilliANT should have been Brilli ant.) All the abnormal capital letters really bugged me, like the author was screaming, look how clever I am! The writing was okay, but it felt like she couldn't decide if she was writing a picture book o [...]

    29. ANTics is the story of three young ants, one of whom is shy, reserved, and lacks confidence in himself. Throughout this exciting children's story, the three friends are pursued by Puggy, a stinky spider who wants nothing more than to make a snack out of them. Relying on each other's strengths, the three friends are finally able to outwit the spider.There are some important lessons that are taught in this story, such as teamwork, the value of true friendship, the importance of community cohesion, [...]
