Beetle Boy

by M.G. Leonard
£6.99   paperback  Chicken House Ltd (2016)

Beetle Boy by M.G. Leonard Darkus is miserable. His dad has disappeared, and now he is living next door to the most disgusting neighbours ever.
A giant beetle called Baxter comes to his rescue. But can the two solve the mystery of his dad’s disappearance, especially when links emerge to cruel Lucretia Cutter and her penchant for beetle jewellery?
A coffee-mug mountain, home to a million insects, could provide the answer – if Darkus and Baxter are brave enough to find it...

"Ever since I was little I’ve been frightened of creepy-crawlies. Then I found out that beetles can be pretty, brightly coloured, even gold. Others are as strong as the Incredible Hulk. Some shoot acid out of their butts, and all beetles have wings! My fear had stopped me from seeing how fantastic beetles were, and so I decided to write an adventure with the beetles as the good guys."
(M.G. Leonard)
