The Roly Polies are a family of not particularly attractive bugs that live under a variety theater. All members of the family wear striped or brightly printed clothing and they each have a special talent. They are all great stars of the stagedancers, actors, singers, and magicians. One day a talent scout flea comes to town looking for new stars. Demonstrating that life must be approached with creativity, this story illustrates the importance of not judging by appearances.
