Mita is a sweet underground termite who desperately wants a friend but whose huge appetite constantly gets her in trouble. There has been a drought, and Mita's neighbors are all seriously hungry. Mariposa, a monarch butterfly, has just flown up from Mexico to visit a garden, but its flowers have all died in the drought. Abe, a feisty bee, also needs pollen, and Aran, a crafty spider, is trying to entrap Mariposa for dinner! Can Mita save them from starvation and prove that everyone deserves a friend? Information on "the bugs and the bees" is a bonus in this suspenseful, fun and highly portable show, which includes some Spanish.
