The Plot

My Brother Ant. In four separate stories, Ant's older brother helps him get rid of the monster under his bed, forgives him for drawing on his homework, tries to read a story, and helps him write to Santa.
Ant Plays Bear. In four more stories Ant and his brother play a game, talk about growing up, hear a scary noise and learn to be friends

 .Betsy Says

I would never have written these books, if I hadn't gotten a letter from a boy named Ant. And, more important, if my beloved grandchild hadn't been the exact same age as Ant and given me lots of ideas.
