Queen Clarice and the Watermelon Seed

CB Fletcher

A red ant princess, Clarice, seeks to find a way to save her starving colony. For generations, the colonies of red ants, bees, scorpions and sphinx moths all lived in a peaceful oasis, surrounded by fruitful bushes and lush grass. Now, after the oasis was pillaged by Princess Mala and her bush spider clan, the remaining red ant colony and scorpion clan are threatened by starvation in the barren desert.

One day, Clarice discovers watermelon and quickly realises this could be her colony's only chance for survival. Under siege yet again, the battle begins for a sole watermelon seed and the possibility of saving the colony.

C B Fletcher's message to ‘have faith in the seed that is planted within you to grow your unique prosperity' is one that resonates throughout the story. Will Queen Clarice conquer her enemies and save her beloved colony?
