Hi Great Brain!

We've got one heck of a stumper that needs your help because we're not making any headway on it ourselves! It's a kids chapter book that was available at least 7-8 years ago. Here's the details:

-        Set in a desert; features ant colonies, a boy, a stone

-        A boy is playing a video game, when his mom unplugs it to get him to go to school - the title of the book may be the name of the videogame

-        The boy is bullied in the story

-        A Native American gives the boy a turquoise stone that shrinks the boy to the size of an ant

-        The boy can talk to the ants and there's something about a fight with another ant colony and a dwarf ant that is smaller than a regular ant

The book does not seem to be The City Under the Back Steps by Lampman. Any thoughts??
Thank you so much for your help!
