Long ago ants only cared about two things'”fashion and dancing'”and stylish shoes, the link between the two, became their biggest obsession. When the ants' only cobbler leaves town, the ants find themselves in trouble. How are stylish ants supposed to keep in vogue without new shoes? When one ant finally does the shocking thing: shows up to a dance BAREFOOT, she creates a scandal'¦and eventually a new fashion trend. A witty tale of change, gracefully matched with chic art depicting high-fashion in ant-sized form.
