Darkus's dad has disappeared - but his new friend, a giant beetle called Baxter, is some consolation. Together, boy and beetle set out to solve the mystery of his father's disappearance. But Lucretia Cutter - a fashion designer with a penchant for beetle jewellery - is dead set against their success ...


No offence, but I hated this book.I only read a couple of chapters, and disliked it.Why? I didn't like the characters, the lack of women and not much description! Read if you want to though, I don't want to stop anyone from reading what they want.

I would recommend it to people who like bugs and adventure stories. I liked it because there was never a dull part and it was always exciting. I liked Darkus the best.

My favourite characters were the neighbours next door because they hated each other so much even though they were living together. I'd recommend this book definitely

This book is extraordinary. It's about this boy called Darkus who lives with his dad also there's this suspicious woman who's calling herself something she's not! Darkus finds a beetle but when the beetle goes missing with his father the hunt is on! Who's behind all this?

This was a super book, with lots of very cool beetles, superb characters and very good surprises. I would think lots of people would like it, especially if you like adventures (and beetles!) I hadn't read the first two books in the series but still managed to enjoy this one.

This was a really good book. I liked it a lot. I thought it was a really good story and really unusual. I especially liked all the information about the different beetles. You would like this book if you like insects and bugs and if you like adventure stories.

You shoudn't read this book because it doesn't tell a good story.

it was a bit boring in the middle because it kept switching to different characters and it was really boring because I lost track but it was exiting.

This book was a fantastic read. It is about a boy called Darkus who befriends a beetle, that's unusual, right? But is this beetle the key of finding out the diserpearence of Darkus's dad? Read this book to find out.

It's the best book I've ever read because it's about an adventurous boy and a mean lady who has captured his dad.
