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.
