Hurly-burly! Pearlie takes part in a Butterfly Carnival in Rio When Pearlie arrives in the dazzling Tijuca Forest in Brazil, she discovers a world of creatures she's never seen before. There are shiny beetles, and lizards that walk on water. But the most amazing creatures of all are the beautifully coloured caterpillars. Pearlie helps her new friend, Morena the Tijuca Forest fairy, prepare for a giant celebration. But some very naughty birds and a case of mistaken identity could ruin the party completely! Is it Pearlie to the rescue or Pearlie being rescued?
