'Really funny, quite scary and totally engrossing' '

Darkus can't believe his eyes when a huge insect drops out of

- and it seems to want to communicate.

But how can a boy be friends with a beetle? And what does a beetle
have to do with the disappearance of his dad and the arrival
of Lucretia Cutter, with her taste for creepy jewellery?

The first book in MG Leonard's acclaimed trilogy, followed
by Beetle Queen and Battle of the Beetles!

Featuring exotic beetles, a daring quest, a mixture of
bold male and female characters and a truly venomous villain
