Three nasty gnarlies 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. But when their homemade cocoons don't do the trick, they must rediscover an age-old truth: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Complete with a musical score - and a recipe for Mud Puddle surprise! "Kids will relish these stinkers' gleeful unconcern for matters of personal hygiene, along with Graves' infectiously silly verses and his irreverent spin on the just-beyourself message." - Booklist
