"As Beetle's class learns about the food world, Beetle decorates the top of her food pyramid with an ant and--and faster than one can say "disgusting"--she's on her way to creating a new food group, living up to a dare to EAT an ant, and testing out more new taste thrills. It takes the arrival of Chef Suzanne and her delicious dishes to boost Beetle's failing sense of adventure. Jessica Almasy narrates with the energy needed to depict this second-grade classroom. Her voice rises and falls, speeds and slows in synch with Beetle's waxing and waning enthusiasm for food exploration. As various classmates, Almasy supports or taunts with childlike vigor. Enjoy Beetle's fun facts about insects and their nutritional value! A.R. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
