In a great big, green garden down on Rollingbrook Way, twin bugs Pixie and Trixie were running outside to play.
They were known throughout their garden, by their friends big and small, as the adorable, brave twins, who were afraid of nothing at all! The bugs had all been best friends, for years, and what they knew to be true...
Was that they were each unique and special, just like me and just like you!
