When a couple of disgruntled honeybees discover their habitat is going to be destroyed to make way for a swimming pool, there’s only one thing for them to do: forge an alliance with the other bugs who live in the yard and stop it. With the help of a swashbuckling cockroach, a pessimistic pill bug, a cicada who loves to party, and a couple of smitten fireflies, can the honeybees do the impossible and ruin human construction plans? Or will they have to resort to asking their ancient enemies, the spiders, for help? What can a group of bugs actually do when their ecosystem is threatened? A hilarious satire about ecological disaster and labor issues, with a smattering of Greek Gods thrown in for fun.
