Selected Reviews

The Boston Globe

“Michael Hall’s It’s an Orange Aardvark! dances from one surprise to the next.”


Publishers Weekly

“Amid the hilarity and hyperventilation, the book also serves as an entertaining introduction to the colors of the rainbow, as the ants put each color in context (“Red like a fire truck") that readers will readily grasp.”


Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Hall’s latest outing is entertaining both for its unusual cast of characters and its amusing yarn-spinning.”


School Library Journal

“Get ready to have another go-to favorite to pair with cherished titles like Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar (Penguin, 1969) and Ehlert’s Color.”


Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Get ready for some hilarity and hijinks as five ants discover what’s really outside their stump home in this die-cut offering from Hall. … Suspenseful and entertaining; all-around great fun. (Picture book. 3-8)"
