|Really?? I think I must be missing some intended "girl power" message in that story or something.
I don't think you're missing anything -- it's a boy ladybug, isn't it? But his grouchiness and his ambition are so out of proportion with his size ... you know, he's picking fights with elephants, and then dismissing them because they aren't big enough to be worth vanquishing with his teeny tiny ladybug fists.
I guess it helps me understand what it must be like to be a two-year-old. You want to assert yourself SO BADLY and everybody's bigger than you and you have basically no patience or ability to cope with frustration. Oh, and everybody is pushing you to share, and YOU DON'T WANT TO SHARE, damn it.
