Lenny the kangaroo is hungry, but all he can find is a mushy brown banana. Put off by its appearance, he tosses it out, but a few industrious ants pick it up because they know just what to do with it!
Written by Jessica Chapnik Kahn, with fun illustrations by Matthew Martin, Lenny and the Ants helps us think about food in different, creative ways. It's estimated that one third of all food produced is lost or wasted, so don't forget to check out the recipes at the back of the book to find out what you can make with those floppy carrots in the bottom of the fridge.
