"Engaging . . . The story moves quickly, and the characters are both wacky and entertaining." --" School Library Journal"
"If I didn't already devote most of my waking hours to beetles, reading this book would make me want to . . . " -- Max Barclay, Coleoptera Collections Manager, Natural History Museum, London

"Leonard's rich storytelling channels the spirit of classic children's fiction with a wholly original slant . . . It's a cracking mystery adventure, with plenty of Roald Dahl-esque humor to engage readers . . . A truly exciting debut." --" The Bookseller (UK)"
"A detective story with a twist, this is an exciting and original story that will appeal equally to boys and girls and -- if I'm anything to go by -- to any adult who loves a cracking story. Prepare for the Battle of the Beetles!" --"The Bookbag (online)"
