Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Beetle brilliant insect friends adventure."

    Finished this audio book in three days,

    Completely submeged in the furniture forest on a mission to find Dad with some new friends and some very special beetles.

    M.G.Leonard is a talented narrator and writer how does she do all of those voices? Pickering and Humphrey were my personal favourites.

    Cant wait to listen to the next installment.

    Story
    "Classroom read-aloud"

    The class (seven 10 and 11 year old boys) loved the book and are waiting for book 2 and a movie. This movie, they say, would be awesome and funny. They are now studying Coleoptera with high levels of engagement.
