Product description

A boy. A beetle. A heroic mission. Think 101 Dalmations with bugs. (But not 101 bugs. More like zillions of them.) Darkus is having a rubbish time. His dad has disappeared, leaving him stuck next door to some really gross neighbours. He needs a friend, and he’s not fussy. Giant bugs are welcome. Then Baxter the talking beetle comes into Darkus’s life. Who needs dogs? This beetle is totally man’s best friend! Can they solve the mystery of what happened to Darkus’s dad? Is it linked to the cruel Lucretia Cutter and her sinister beetle jewellery?

  • Rollicking adventure filled with amazing science
  • Great if you like Roald Dahl or The Last Wild
  • Brilliant five-star reviews from excited fans
  • “I loved it. SO good” – The Bookseller
