Lucky's character was pretty clear and struggling: he was bullied, and his parents aren't very much of a help. Now in the total plain to state it specifics? His mom is a squid, swimming away the problems. His dad is a turtle, hiding away whenever something bad happens. His guidance counselor isn't much help so to say that Nader McMillian is beating him up for no reason.
Truly it's nice because he doesn't suddenly one day wakes up and wants to change and it happens. He goes through a process with the kindness ninja, his uncle Dave and aunt Jodi, and standing up for himself, being in control. You get to be in control for who you are, now make a difference.
And everyone does see the ants. I do, many do, and maybe you do as well.
