Reviews

Readers will delight in the silly antics and wacky wordplay of these unlikely companions just as much as they'll enjoy the conversational, tall-tale voice adopted by the narrator. A zany, hilarious first in a planned trilogy.
--Kirkus Reviews

There's little physical action; instead, the energy comes from Yorinks's hotheaded dialogue ("Buzz off!") and Ruzzier's expressive characters and backgrounds. Though the even-tempered fly shows signs of being able to break through the ant's hostile defenses, redemption is fleeting for the vaudevillian pair. And a surprise ending brings the proceedings to a sudden close that may prove a bit of a shock for those who have gotten into the lengthy story's rhythm.
