A little ant who is the smallest of her colony, is ecstatic to find a crumb of cake to take back to the anthill to enjoy during the long cold winter. However, she finds that she does not have the strength to carry it by herself. She asks many different animals for help, including a lizard, spider, chicken and coyote. She even has the courage to climb all the way to the top of the farmer's head to ask his help. No one will help her. But she does succeed in scaring the wits out of the farmer. The little ant quickly realizes that if she can scare the farmer, who is the scariest of all, she should be able to carry her cake crumb. And she does.
