A whirring, zinging, hopping-good show that will have kids itching for more! All of insect land is abuzz with news of a big contest! The demure Damselfly Dilly - "neither clever nor frilly" - has no thoughts of winning, but she's curious to find out who will. And what she sees makes her eyes bug out! Glowworms light up the stage, the audience hums with anticipation, and a panel of judges grins . . . but wait, aren't those fangs she sees glinting? The wild and witty team that brought us SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE DINOSAUR STOMP and MARTIAN ROCK is back with an exhilarating invasion of bombardier beetles, squirting stinkbugs, praying mantises, and one plucky little Damselfly who keeps her huge eyes open - and seeing in all directions. Once again, Carol Diggory Shields's lively verse mixes fun, fancy, and fascinating fact, while Scott Nash's exuberant artwork virtually flies off the page.
