Make that six starred reviews for EVERYBODY SEES THE ANTS. Six. As in one more than five and one less than seven.
This morning, I heard that the wonderful journal The Horn Book had raved and given ANTS another star. I was in an airport trying to eat a dry tasteless muffin when this news came in and needless to say, I scrapped the muffin. I am so grateful and so honored and most of all, SO HAPPY that people are getting Lucky Linderman's message. 

Here's a quote:
"King’s themes of torture, physical and emotional imprisonment, and bullying connect in satisfying ways in this improbably witty and heartwarming story." --The Horn Book (Starred)
Now...seriously. Stay tuned for the mega giveaway. I will post it tonight or tomorrow.
