Beauty is in the eye of the beholder is the theme of this hilarious self-help satire that doubles as a fun-to-sing operetta. Based on an obscure operetta by the composer Funguso Smellagrossi, this is a story of three nasty gnarlies who love their lives in the dump until a snooty butterfly comes along and convinces them that they have to look like her to be beautiful. So they wrap themselves in bits of silk and hang upside down from a tree. In the spring, when they discover they are still nasty gnarlies, they must draw on all of their inner strength to appreciate their true selves. Musical score and recipe for Mud Puddle Surprise (a treat made of chocolate pudding, peanut butter, & gummy worms!) are included.
