A Bugs Life: Classic Storybook by Walt Disney Company
I read this storybook to my little cousin. She is seven years old. She absolutely loved this book. She loved the illustrations that went along with the story. I also enjoyed this storybook. I thought it was a cute little story. It had a nice flow to the story line. The illustrations were well done and helped understand the story more. My little cousin and I enjoyed the story.
The story of “A Bugs Life” is about a bug named Flik who had high hopes. He was determined to save his colony from Hopper and the mean group of grasshoppers. He wanted to win to receive respect from his colony and the woman he loved. Every year, colonies of ants were expected to harvest food for a bunch of grasshoppers. Flik was an inventor. His creations usually did more bad than good. When he tried out a mechanical harvester, he dropped his machine on auto-pilot. It then knocked the pile of food into a stream just before the grasshoppers arrived. Their leader, Hopper, gave the ants the rest of the season to make good on what they owed, but he then he ordered a double amount of food after Flik stood up to him in defense of the Queens youngest daughter, Dot. When Flik suggested that he tried to recruit some tough bugs to fight the grasshoppers, Princess Atta allowed him to do so, but only to keep him out of the way.
There are two main characters, Flik and the group of grasshoppers. Flik can be described as hardworking but a big mess. He tried really hard to make friends, but just came off as annoying. The group of grasshoppers can be described as mean. Throughout the story they tried to find a way for the colony to not succeed.
Impacts of setting:
This story takes place at an ant colony during the modern day time. The ant colony is a very important place because that is what Flik tried to save throughout the story.
The thematic connection is to never let go of what they believed in. Flick went to save the colony and didn’t stop until he saved it. He believed he could do it and didn’t stop until he did.
I would recommend this storybook to any gender of any age. I say this because anyone will enjoy the story. It has a cute storyline and wonderful illustrations that go along with the storybook
A Bug's Life
Life is no picnic for the ants on Ant Island! Each summer a gang of greedy grasshoppers - led by the menacing and manipulative Hopper Kevin Spacey - descends upon the colony to demand a hefty portion of the ants' hard-earned harvest and generally make life miserable for this peaceful community. Our hero Flik Dave Foley , an original thinker out of step with the rest of the more traditionally-minded colony, takes it upon himself to get outside help and mistakenly enlists an unemployed troupe of bug performers from a second-rate flea circus to join the fight against the grasshoppers. Working together in their new-found friendship, the ants and the circus bugs prepare for a climactic confrontation with the grasshoppers. When Flik's plan starts to unravel, the action and comedy turns fast and furious as he attempts to save the colony and his reputation.
Part 3: Time for a mini-boss battle.
i always think negative thoughts
Fight us. It was a personal rivalry that blew up into a corporate war involving both sides duking it out using some of the most state-of-the-art, never-before-seen economic weaponry of the time: animated ants. Disney later dropped Katzenberg. Katzenberg denied the claims. Scheduling was always the crux of the problem between Disney and DreamWorks. Everything goes through this kind of brutal process in storyboarding, animatics, back to script and you go through that over and over and over again.
