When a blanket of vines takes over the peaceful town of Red Mud Flats, the citizens find themselves in kudzu chaos. It takes the courage of Bobby Lee, the creativity of Kudzu Katie, and the cooperation of the townspeople to transform the smothering green monster of kudzu into a small-town miracle.
Even though he lives in a quiet town, Bobby Lee knows adventure when he sees it and bravely volunteers to journey through the creeping vines and into the kudzu-covered forest to find Kudzu Katie, the only one who can provide a solution to the frightening vine. Kudzu Katie’s insight into the positive potential of the sprawling green plant shows the citizens of Red Mud Flats that their kudzu nightmare is really a blessing in disguise.
