This book is about a boy called Darkus. Darkus’ mum has died and his Dad has mysteriously disappeared. In his amazing quest to find his dad, he discovers a beetle! It comes out of his evil new neighbour’s pocket. The beetle tries to communicate with Darkus and becomes his best friend.
But how can a boy be friends with a beetle?
How long can he keep his beetle a secret from his new carer, his Uncle Max?
What does he do when a strange lady called Lucretia Cutter comes and starts plotting something with his next door neighbour?
This great book ends on a cliff hanger and I would like to read a sequel.
This book intrigued me and I was always on the edge of my seat, determined to read on!
I give it 10/10!
