Summary In northern Cameroon, in the Mandaras Mountains, the Mofu live a unique relationship with insects, sharing with them their homes and cultivations. This year however, a terrible draught hits the region and the termites, usually a precious ally to the Mofu, have left the fields and invaded the huts and granaries. To fight back, the Mofu people have no choice but to call for Jaglavak. Only this ferocious army ant that has the body of a dragon can chase the termites out of the village. If Jaglavak answers to the call, the termites in their mud fortresses better beware.
