About the Book

Calling all adventure loving explorers to join two brave ants trailblazing through the Amazon!

Taoca, the red army ant, and her colony from the deciduous forest are devastated by not only the two-legged creatures and their shiny blades but also by ravaging fires and fierce storms. Taoca is swept down the Amazon River and finds herself stranded in a strange rainforest environment where she befriends the leaf-cutter ant, Chief Sauva. Chief Sauva and Taoca journey through the rain forest brimming with danger and surprises to seek out Imbauba, the wise sloth. Hopefully, Imbauba will help Taoca find her way back to her lost colony.
