KIRKUS REVIEW

An Italian classic. Only available English translation under title Prince and his Ants was published by Holt in 1910. This is a better version, thought -- like the other -- it seems dated. Three children get their wish to escape school and to live as insects, and they find that the ants, the bees, the crickets and so on all have their tasks in life. Good nature material, somewhat spoiled by occasional patronizing note.
