It's the day of Cricket's fancy-dress party and Ant and Honey Bee think they've made the perfect costumes... until it starts to rain. But when it comes to quick-thinking and creativity, Ant and Honey-Bee really are quite a pair!
Megan McDonald grew up in Pennsylvania, USA, the youngest of five girls. All her family were great story-tellers, and she claims she couldn't get a word in edgeways, so she began to write her stories down instead. Megan received a BA in Children's Literature and worked in bookstores, libraries and schools before becoming a full-time writer. She lives in California with her husband, Richard. G. Brian Karas has illustrated over 65 books for children. He is often inspired by his surroundings, and has used many different locations as his art studio: from a sewing factory turned artist's co-op in Manhattan, to the last house ever designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, to a cabin at a desert mountain lodge in Arizona. He lives in New York.
