書籍內容簡介:
書中的小男孩Lucas常被鄰居的大朋友欺負,於是當他看到地上的螞蟻時便依樣地用水欺負那些螞蟻,螞蟻皇后非常的生氣,便要的螞蟻把他變小並要其體驗身為螞蟻的辛苦,沒想到當他跟螞蟻回到家中要去拿食物時,竟被爸爸當成螞蟻了!他會被爸爸打死嗎?而當螞蟻們知道他被別的小朋友欺負時,又會怎麼來幫他呢?所以小朋友千萬不可以「欺善怕惡」喔!適合6歲以上兒童閱讀。

Lucas's funny glasses and strange hat make him a perfect target for Sid, the neighborhood bully, and, since Lucas can't fight Sid, he tortures defenseless ants instead. Then the ants retaliate, and their queen shrinks Lucas to their size, forcing him into a life of hard labor with the worker ants. When he is given the supreme test of bringing the queen a red Swell Jell candy from his home, the boy shows his true mettle, protecting his partners from being swatted by his father. In gratitude, the queen returns him to his normal size, shrinking Sid instead. With the current popularity of the animated movies Antz and A Bug's Life, this title is timed just right for success, but the book falls short. The message is certainly clear, and Nickle's full-page acrylic paintings are bright, funny, and appealing. The text, however, is only average. The sentences are choppy, lack variety in their structure, and leave out potentially interesting details. Still, since the theme of a bully's getting his comeuppance continues to appeal to youngsters, the story is a suitable additional purchase for those collections in which books such as Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's King of the Playground (Atheneum, 1991) are popular.
