The Story

 

An inquisitive young girl, Annie, visits a Butterfly Farm and becomes fascinated by its colony of Leafcutter ants. After persistent pressure on her mother, Annie is eventually allowed to visit a Butterfly Farm in Belize. Having investigated the work of the Farm and marvelled at the Maya culture, she is persuaded to take a cup of hot chocolate which, magically, reduces her in size so that she is able to enter a Leafcutter colony. It is an experience which inspires her to become a scientist and work on the conservation of threatened species.
