Hosler does a great job in this text of bringing this Ant to life in a fun way that also allows the reader to learn interesting facts along the way!

Epic. I've learned so much about ants and other insects in their microcosm. Rubi, a cartoon ant, helps us understand all there is to know about ants with her Once Upon a Time... stories filled with science facts and humor. Then another character (named Miranda) joins her to explore the world and uncover all the secrets. We learn about different types of ants, their colonies their purpose, and how their life cycle works (from birth to feeding and death).
This educational graphic novel is filled with humor and valuable information making learning pleasant.
Did you know about Assassin Bugs?
I hope there will be more books like this one.

Thank you Publisher and Netgalley for the digital copy.

I absolutely adored The Way of the Hive by Jay Hosler. So when I saw that he created another graphic novel, this time about ants, I knew I had to read it. I enjoy Hosler's brightly colored artwork style. The characters are very expressive throughout the book. He does an excellent job of weaving non-fiction into a fictional story, and adding some life lessons as well. The facts and lessons never feel heavy-handed. I absolutely adored Rubi. Graphic novel fans are sure to enjoy this one. I hope Jay Hosler keeps creating these types of books.

This graphic novel would be great to have in a classroom library or just at home. The illustrations are wonderful.

This was informative and would probably be enjoyed by kids. The art was cute and parts of the story were cute, but I felt like I just wanted to skim some sections. This would be good for a younger audience. It introduces the educational information in a palpable, way since it's in a graphic novel format.

With vibrant illustrations, we have Rubi take us on an adventure, but we need to pay attention because there are a “gajillion ways to die out there.” She tells Miranda, a friend, if you don’t smell like family, other ants can pull you apart to protect their colony. Rubi tells us about leafcutter ants, exploding ants, killer army ants and the many things each can do. Did you know weaver ants can sew leaves together? Kids will love this book full of adventure, friendships, and escapes.
