From the publisher:
Lilly P. Badilly is a little millipede with a brilliant mind and an exceptional talent for playing the piano. She lives in a hole in the wall in the Miami International Airport with her grandparents, Nellie O. Badilly and Willie Z. Badilly. Together they embark on a courageous, and sometimes hilarious, travel adventure deep into the fertile rain forest of Costa Rica. It is there that Lilly is forced to face her biggest fears in order to save the lives of her family, herself and her new friends. Along the way, Lilly learns a lot about geography, culture and the plants and animals of Costa Rica. Best of all she discovers that if she uses her talents and intelligence, she can work through her fears and turn a frightening situation into a celebration!
