Recommends it for: beginning readers and parents reading with them
This is a fun story about a couple of friends who want to have costumes that complement each other. They brainstorm a few different ideas and come up with a satisfactory solution. The end result is not exactly what they planned, but still ends up making them a matched pair. Overall, the story is entertaining and is fun to read aloud. The illustrations are colorful and cartoonish, too. We enjoyed reading this story together and I liked the fact that they worked together to make their costumes.
What a fun book! This humorus book for early readers follows the Halloween adventures of friends Ant and Bee. First, they must decide on costumes, then create the costumes. Once Halloween arrives they set out trick or treating only to discover that no one knows what they are! Written with Megan McDonald's exuberent sense of humor accompanied by G. Brian Karas's expressive adorable art work, this title a winner for young readers!

This was a wonderful picture book for our children. My daughter is 5 and just finishing senior kindergarten. She loved that she could sight read so many of the words in this book. The illustrations are bright and vibrant with a great variety in colors and backgrounds. The story crafted in word and image is wonderful. Megan McDonald and Brian Karas have created a great book. I hope they create more stories with either Ant and Honey Bee or other books together. Ant and Honey Bee are best friends a ...more

"Sometimes I think I am Judy Moody," says Megan McDonald, author of the Judy Moody series, the Stink series, and THE SISTERS CLUB. "I'm certainly moody, like she is. Judy has a strong voice and always speaks up for herself. I like that."

For Megan McDonald, being able to speak up for herself wasn't always easy. She grew up as the youngest of five sisters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her father, an
