It was a cooking book about them making an Eiffel Tower sandwich that was actually kind of disgusting to us. But it was good for Ant and Honeybee. It was a funny story.

You will become incredibly familiar with the story and the history of this event in the Greek mythology. Also, the book is very well written and informative.
