Beetle McGrady dreams of being an explorer like Marco Polo or a pioneer like Amelia Earhart. She dreams of being brave and daring, and she will begin by … eating an ant. It’s dare double dare on the school playground, but will Beetle be able to live up to her dreams? Face to face –– or Beetle to ant –– will she be able to bite and chew and … swallow? Gulp! If she does, what will the ant taste like? If she does, will the ant be crunchy or squishy? And if she can’t, does that mean she’s a chicken?
