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! 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!
