The Ants

Ummmmm happened upon this....

Remind you of anything Hex-like?

There is no way this picture book was not written with the help of hallucinogens. On page 2 it says..."The Creator of the World stopped by to see how things were going. She liked to wear disguises and had come as a porcupine, which caused a lot of trouble." But perhaps more troubling is the fact that the ants in the story speak in numbers and symbols. I'm not sure if they're swearing or if they're just from the colony of ants formally known as Prince.


I would acrually like to read this book :lol:

Whoever wrote this must have got the publisher really drunk before presenting the manuscript.

He is an American author I have seen a couple of his books on my travels.

Kotzwinkle wrote the novelization of the screenplay for E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988) (original story, for the film)
