The Big Ant
by Adrian George NicolaeUp on an anthill was the strongest ant of all. Big claws, spiky legs, mouth wider than the Everest; or so they say. When he ordered, all obeyed. Even the ant-girls who parlayed. But one bright night, as they were ready for a bite, there appeared a body… Caught by surprise, they scrambled here and there, running for their lives. Except for one. The mighty ant on top of the hill watched the aardvark get near. He put up his dukes and growled. The attacker stopped, laughed, and sucked him right in. Big ant yelled for help, but no one came, for they were all afraid. The pig chomped him to bits, gurgled, then fled the scene in search of a new ant to kill.
