(From the publisher):
Of all her classmates, Abby dislikes Dirk the most. The way he always teases her and calls her names is so annoying! Now she's stuck on his team for the Crazy Olympics at school. On top of that, she has to pet-sit his ant farm over the weekend. Leave it to Dirk to have ants for pets.
But Abby's little sister, Tess, thinks the ants are great, and even worse, Tess gets along with Dirk! Abby wants nothing to do with either of them until she nearly knocks over the ant farm and badly disrupts their small sand caves and tunnels. Then she discovers that Tess is right; ants are amazing creatures and a lot smarter than she thought. Is it possible that she's been too hard on Dirk and Tess? With the Crazy Olympics just a few days away, she still has a chance to put things right.
