Character Descriptions:Stella: Full of creativity and a need to be who she is away from all the usual things that 'spiders' do..
Charlie: The Queen Bee's Minister, Nervous, wants to help Stella but doesn't know quite how.
Ronald: A typical spider. He wants everything as it is and as it has always been and plays up to Stella's Mother.
Queen Bee: A typical 'diva' who know she is in control.
Mother: Always trying to get her daughter to do the 'right' thing—her way. She loves her daughter but really does not understand her.
Caterpillar: Crazy, over the top character who likes who he is.
Harry: A gentle, loving, and rather quiet wasp, until he bursts forth with his feelings. Also wants something more than the usual.
The Praying Mantis (Guru): Very much the leader of his group. Likes to be in control, and has not a clue as to what anything is---but thinks he has all the answers.
Dragonflies, Ants, Ladybugs: All part of the Praying Mantis group. Quirky characters!
Bees: All servants of the Queen Bee. They all adore her and are obedient to her every command.
