Darkus Cuttle can’t believe his eyes when a huge insect drops off the pants leg of his horrible new neighbour. It’s a giant beetle — 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 the terrifying Lucretia Cutter, with her taste for creepy fashion?
The first book of a trilogy, Beetle Boy is a darkly hilarious adventure full of exotic beetles, daring schemes, and true friendship.
