Mother Ant's many antlings strayed from their food-searching mission in the yard to check out Mrs. Craft's tie-dyed shirts on the clothesline. By the time Mother Ant found them dancing and playing in the fluorescent dye drops, it was too late. To stay alive, the dyed antlings must never leave the anthill again for fear of being sighted by hungry birds. Strong family values help Mother Ant and her antlings solve their incredible situation and begin a glowing new life.
