Synopsis: Noira the Ant wears a diamond ring and tells everyone a king gifted it to her for bravery. She becomes famous as the Great Traveller Ant. But the truth is something different. Noira is a thief. Will the other ants learn the truth? What will Noira do if they find out? 
The Ant Thief is a Read Aloud bed time story kids will enjoy. It is also suitable for children starting to discover books and stories. 

Review: This is a cute story complete with a moral. Noira is an ant who doesn't like to work, so she steals from other ants to get what she wants. Eventually she learns a hard lesson, and becomes a most productive worker.

The illustrations are simple, yet fully convey the story on each page. The writing is also reasonably simple, so that it holds the attention of children being read to, and is also appropriate for a beginning reader. 

This short little book teaches three lessons to children: the importance of teamwork, not to steal from others, and not to lie. 

This is a wonderful book which I recommend to everyone.

Rating: Five stars
