Publisher's Summary

The creator of podcasts and documentaries for the National Theatre of Great Britain, M. G. Leonard delivers a rousing debut.

Darkus Cuttle took care of his father ever since his mother died, but one day his father vanished from a locked vault at the Natural History Museum, and now Darkus lives with his eccentric uncle - but one day he finds a large and unusually intelligent and self-aware beetle, and soon he and his two friends are caught up in a struggle to protect an intelligent superspecies of beetles.
