Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Thursday, May 06, 2021
This slim hardcover was among the books donated by the United Way and the Nashua Public Library for distribution to various Little Free Libraries, and I nabbed it for another release copy.

It's an alphabet book themed on (surprise!) ants - starting with ANTique, showing an old-lady aunt in a rocker on her porch, knitting, and ending with Antzzzzzzzzz, and a picture of a picnic table strewn with ants who have presumably passed out from too many cookie crumbs. Very cute! (The back cover even features a musical score, "Aria AndANTe", with the musical notes drawn as ants...)

I loved the whole thing, but my favorite entries include "chANT" (a row of ant-monks in a cathedral), "flamboyANT" (a fabulously-dressed ant sauntering down the boulevard), "mutANT" (a gigantic ant looms over a startled ant-eater), "vigilANTes" (a group of ants in cowboy hats and gun-belts), and - new word for my vocabulary - "xANThophile", one who loves the color yellow, with an image of an ant happily sunbathing on top of a banana.
