The Brothers
Mongoose has had it with Aardvark's constant snoring every night, so he enlists the aid of other African animals to maek Aardvark go sleep somewhere else. Everything from monkeys to rhinos try to roust Aardvark from his spot on the tree, but he always ends up just falling asleep again. In the end, the only thing that changes Aardvark's sleeping habits is his love of termites (which mostly come out at night).

Illustrations are okay.

This was one of the worst children's books I have ever read! The aardvark snores, so let's do mean things to him to try and convince him to move! That was the story! Not behaviours I want to be teaching my children. The aardvark wasn't the awful one, everyone else was!

Wasn't what I expected and seemed kind of mean, but more of a Just-so story a la Kipling.
Miss Amanda

Great story about why aardvarks eat ants and sleep during the day.
