This funny, satisfying picture book from the author of What a Lucky Day! gives a fresh spin to a familiar childhood theme: trying new things.

I’m Andy

And I like what I like! 

Andy is a very particular anteater. He has his favorite toys, his favorite song, his favorite food . . . 

Ants! They’re the best! 

But when Andy goes for a sleepover with his favorite friend, Sam Sloth, he’s faced with unfamiliar things to play with—and strange new foods for dinner. 

Jashar Awan’s winning and gently funny story celebrates trying something new and finding out it might be more fun—and tastier—than it looks.
