illustrator: Sergio Ruzzier

series name:
One Mean Ant
Well, here they are again. The ant, the fly, and the flea. Stuck doing tricks for the circus-goers every night and twice on Sundays. Stuck like a . . . well, you know. But with the help of Moth, a fellow performer with a pretty spectacular trick, the four plan their escape. Will it work? Can you teach an old moth not to fly into a light bulb? In a third tale buzzing with wordplay and wacky-eyed insects, acclaimed playwright and author Arthur Yorinks, together with award-winning illustrator Sergio Ruzzier, presents a hilarious (and unexpectedly heartfelt) finale to the series about the meanest ant ever and his buggy “friends.”
Can this band of disgruntled circus stars find their escape? With a third slapstick tale, comedy team Arthur Yorinks and Sergio Ruzzier present a satisfying—and surprising—final act.
