The any bully


Lucas is and ordinary boy with glasses being mistreated by Sid, the neighborhood bully. Lucas copes with the bullying by tormenting ants with water. The ants retaliate and take Lucas to their Queen ant. She has Lucas shrunk so he can live and work as an ant so he can appreciate what they do. Lucas gathered food, defended the colony, and attended to the queen. The queen appreciates the lesson Lucas has learned and rewards him by turning him back into his normal size. When Lucas wakes up, he sees that the ants have decided to teach Sid a lesson, because he has now been shrunk to their size.
