KIRKUS REVIEW

I started this with a bias against nature study metamorphosed into a fairy tale, but as I read, I found myself fascinated by the adventures of Peter in the kingdom of the ants, where his human mentality helped the instinct-controlled ants to defeat their enemies, the red ants. He saw all phases of life in the ant hill and the story makes it all seem very real, so that any child would have a different feeling about the industrious little creatures hereafter. The publishers have made a beautiful book, with good format, and attractive illustrations, eight in full color, and numerous black and whites.
