Cast: Main Roles
JAMES - our young hero; from a downtrodden, lonely child, he develops into a brave "captain" of the insect band; he acts as narrator too.
OLD-GREEN-GRASSHOPPER - elderly, genial, courteous, avuncular, musical (he plays the violin); he helps narrate.
MISS SPIDER - occasionally sharp, even a little sinister, but ultimately kind; her marathon-thread spinning to save the peach is truly heroic.
CENTIPEDE - a sparky, cocky, warm-hearted Jack-the-lad.
LADYBIRD - posh though not prissy, pretty though not vain, volatile though level-headed.
EARTHWORM - not only blind, but a pessimist, a doom merchant whose standing in the group and whose self-esteem improves, thanks to James.
