Effie is an ant just like everyone else, except she has a voice like thunder. Every time Effie talks to another ant or insect they squirm, fly, scurry, or parachute away. Effie eventually is able to use her voice to save her anthill from being stepped on by a heavy elephant's foot. She does this by calling out for the elephant to stop. After Effie saves the hill the ants treat her better, and she becomes friends with all of the elephants that love to hear her voice.
