Z-4195 is just a worker ant--one in a billion--and his odds of landing the beautiful princess Bala, the spoiled daughter of the queen--are about the same. A Central Park inhabitant who's undaunted by the colony's unyielding caste system, Z enlists the aid of his best friend, a soldier ant named Weaver, to get to the Princess on whom he has his sights. When a remarkable twist of fate turns Z from an uncommon drone into an unlikely hero, he unwittingly puts a bug in the ambitious General Mandible's plan literally to liquidate the colony and remake it in his own image. Z soon finds himself leading a revolution that becomes a celebration of individuality in the face of overwhelming conformity. Once the most insignificant of workers, Z may just prove to be the biggest hero of them all.
