Excited Minibeasts are getting ready for their Midsummer Fiesta, when Inspector Secticide and his Bug Squad gatecrash with a violin-case stuffed full of insect-fighting weapons - 'A magnifying glass to spot 'em, a fly swatter to swat 'em, and pesticide to get 'em!' Bees, Butterflies, Millipedes, Spiders, Snails and Praying Mantises try to run for cover. Even the fearless Fly is terrified! After getting stuck in the mud and tied up in a web, the Bug Squad launch their attack. But the Minibeasts, using their natural defences, send Inspector Secticide and his Bug Squad packing with 'a bee in their bonnet, bugs in their bed, ants in their pants and a flea in their ear'! Finally, Senor Cicada strikes up his band of Crickets and the 'Best Fiesta in the Land' begins!
A witty rhyming script and lively songs (including ones with French, Spanish and Latin verses!), encourage children to observe & care for all living creatures great and small.
