But I Don't Eat Ants
by Dan Marvin
Illustrated by Kelly Fry
"Koalas aren't called Eucalyptus-eaters. Pandas aren't called Bamboo-eaters. Jaguars eat Anteaters, but they aren't called Anteater-eaters!" insists a voracious young Anteater who will gobble up just about every food except for one: ants! This clever take on the picky-eater is full of wry humor and silly puns as the anteater takes us through the food he LOVES to eat, all while repeating the refrain, "but I don't eat ants." That is until dinnertime when his mom presents him with with a "fiery" surprise. The final punchline playfully depicts the often illogical rationalizations of young picky eaters in a way that will have kids and their parents laughing.

Dan lives in Farmington Hills, Michigan, with his wife Andrea, son Cooper, and daughter Audrey. Andrea and Audrey are picky eaters. Dan and Cooper will try almost anything. BUT THEY DON'T EAT ANTS!
