Description

Anastasia, formerly a princess thanks to the fairy Brunilda's magic wand, is now an everyday cockroach with a big heart, determined to do good. She dreams of becoming a famous, important figure like her distant relatives, the Egyptian scarab beetles, who are treated like royalty. After some exciting adventures in her new incarnation--including saving the lives of an entire human family--Anastasia realizes it's not so bad being an ordinary cockroach after all. Will Brunilda reward Anastasia for her generous deeds? This humorous tale of self-acceptance and unity is sure to have children seeing cockroaches in a new light.show more
