#Review: Anthony Any Goes To France by Julie Bettendorf #kidsbooks #worldtravel

Join Anthony Ant as he travels around the world! Hi, my name is Anthony Ant, and I love to go places. When I travel, I can fit into some pretty small spaces. Once I curled up in a suitcase, as snug as could be. When I came out, I was in beautiful France. Whoopee! These are the tales of Anthony Ant, a child's travel companion and all-around great adventurer. Anthony travels in style, comfortably lodged in a suitcase, and he never knows what strange, new country he will find himself in. In Anthony Ant Goes to France, he travels to Paris, where he meets Lulu Ladybug. Together they explore the food, culture, and sights of the city. Anthony visits the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral, eats French pastry, and gets to know the French people, all with his new friend Lulu.

My review:
This book is a first in a series for this author. She is know to be a world traveler and has started writing books based on some of her travels. This book takes the reader on a trip to France.

A tiny ant by the name of Anthony is the main character. He and a companion he meets along the way show the reader all of the well known sites of France. The book is written in first person poetry so Anthony's thoughts about each site is conveyed. This is a darling way to portray  this character and I think adds to the appeal of the book.

The pictures in the book are slightly cartoon-ish, large, and colorful making this an all around fun and like-able book. I look forward to maybe seeing more books from this author.

I give this world traveler 4 stars!
