'Truly great storytelling.' MICHAEL MORPURGO
can't believe his eyes when a huge insect drops
out of the trouser 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 Lucretia Cutter,
with her taste for creepy jewellery?
