A little glimpse into “LEGEND OF THE DEWBERRY HARVESTER”
A wee lad named, Brewnie, is sent out with the veteran, who cautions him to stay away from most carnivorous plants. Brewnie especially learns about the Huntsman Horn, his family’s favorite, unaware it eats insects. Brewnie also learns how the use of his antennae can detect whenever the Tick Trefoil beast, or any other danger, is near. Excited with his newfound wisdom, Brewnie departs from the others—forgetting to help gather seeds for the day.
Being chased off by Busy Nora, Brewnie bumps into Ms. Beatle, who later shows him how to raise a garden. The idea of having a garden at Dewberry would keep his family from having to search for food—or, better yet, from ever having to face the Tick Trefoil beast again.
However, a startling revelation comes with the quickly graying sky. Brewnie has lost track of time, and must hurry back to help get the seeds inside! After finding the workers have already left—and all alone in the night—Brewnie tries to find his way back to Dewberry. While fleeing from treacherous predators, he comes across a campground, and overhears a terrifying plot—“trickery seeds” that have been put out, and will kill any ant that eats them!
Brewnie continues his race home, desperate to warn his family of the danger. However, when he reaches Dewberry, he finds that Beavil, the gatekeeper, has instructed his team to plug the entrances! Has the colony forsaken him?
(FACT: About dusk each evening the outside entrance to the nest is closed or barricaded with pebbles, just as we close and lock our doors each night. Any ants still out foraging in the surrounding area are locked out. -- “The Ant Realm” by Ross E. Hutchins)
