Amos is a very grumpy anteater who doesn’t want to share with anyone. He hides away, keeping himself to himself. One day, he gets into trouble and there’s no one around to help him until another anteater comes along and teaches Amos the power of friendship.
The first book in The Animal Alphabet series, Amos the Anteater is a story about a selfish anteater who loves to eat. The other anteaters don’t like Amos, because he keeps all of the ants for himself. One day, after eating too much Amos gets into trouble and there’s no one around to help him. Another adventurous anteater eventually comes to his rescue and Amos learns that being friendly is the best way to be!

About the Author
Kaley Owen didn’t grow up dreaming of being a writer. As a matter of fact, she never knew what she wanted to be. Having spent time working with children, Kaley loved encouraging them to explore and be creative, helping them learn whilst having a good time.
Her work with children inspired her to write the Animal Alphabet series. Fun and educational, each book is filled with laughs and teaches children a valuable lesson.
When she’s not writing, she enjoys traveling, singing lead vocals in a band, languages and spending time with her friends and family.
About the Illustrator
Graeme Holding’s style of drawing is bright, fun, traditional but quirky. He likes to draw animals bringing a sense of personality to my characters. Born in Helsby, Cheshire he now lives in the industrial town of Runcorn with his wife and four children.
Drawing is an important part of Graeme’s life and something he has always been passionate about. Graeme relished in any drawing activity as a child at school. He was particularly inspired by a children’s book illustrator that visited my primary school, Anthony Lewis. He knew then, that this is what I wanted to do when he grew up. It just so happened that Anthony was Graeme’s cousin and has been a big influence on his work ever since.
