This exciting musical appeals to children's love of creatures great and small. It takes place in a wood where Minibeasts are getting ready for their Midsummer Fiesta. But Inspector Secticide gatecrashes with his Bug Squad and a violin-case containing insect-fighting gear!
A magnifying glass to spot 'em, a fly swatter with which to swat 'em,
A spray to spray 'um and upset 'em, and finally a net 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. The Minibeasts retaliate, using their natural defences to send Inspector Secticide and his Bug Squad packing!
Bees in their bonnet, bugs in their bed, a weird kind of buzzing going on in their heads!
Ants in their pants and a flea in their ear!

The children absolutely love your music. The whole of the school I’m working with from P1-7 (ages 5-12) are taking part and are, appropriately, buzzing with excitement!! Lesley Mair
