About the Book

Rosa is a little red ant who is filling her belly with delicious food when she and the other members of her colony suddenly realize the ground is shaking and quickly crawl away. Moments later, a herd of elephants tramples her beautiful ant home. Determined to create a new peaceful existence, Rosa and her ant friends build a village high in a beautiful acacia tree. Relieved she is finally safe in her cozy home, Rosa is minding her own business one day when she realizes an elephant is feeding on the branches of her beloved tree and frightening all the other ants. After Rosa vows to protect her beautiful home from all creatures, she builds her strength and waits. She finally has her chance to save the day when an elephant rumbles into the ant village one night. But will Rosa be able to summon enough courage to stop the creature from destroying her home again? In this delightful tale, a little ant must transform into a brave hero in order to protect her home from being destroyed by elephants.
