Everyone's favorite rock group is back! When Tess, a tin foil ball, rolls onto the hill and meets Marvin, Ricky and the rest of the rocks, she immediately worries that she's not good enough:
"Do you want to play?" asked Parker and Kai.
"No thanks," whispered Tess. "I'm just rolling on by.
I'm sure that you've noticed I don't really fit in.
I'm not even a rock, I'm just made of tin.
I'm not smooth and solid, and I'm not strong like you...
I'm a tin foil ball - there's not much I can do."
But when the rocks go off looking for a lost pebbles and get lost in the woods later that night, it's Tess to the rescue, as she realizes that everyone has value, and even a tin ball can be a rock star!
