With a wicked bug-mother and a pair of creepy-crawly step-sisters, shy, plain Slugerella stands no chance of making it to The Ugly Bug Ball! But with the help of a shiny new makeover, courtesy of her Fairy Moth-mother, will Slugerella be able to score an invite to the best party in the glade? Will she be able to hide who she truly is from the charming Prince Snail? Find out in this miniature tale of magic, music and mucus, which proves that everyone is beautiful, no matter how small.
