Wishing an incredibly happy publication day to M G Leonard, whose book, Beetle Queen is released into the world today from Chicken House Books.
In the second of the Beetle trilogy, cruel beetle fashionista, Lucretia Cutter, is at large with her yellow ladybird spies.
When Darkus, Virginia and Bertolt discover further evidence of her evil, they’re determined to stop her. But the three friends are in trouble. Darkus’ dad has forbidden them to investigate any further – and disgusting crooks Humphrey and Pickering are out of prison. Hope rests on Novak, Lucretia’s daughter and a Hollywood actress, but the beetle diva is always one scuttle ahead …
Beetle Queen is the sequel to the bestselling Beetle Boy, a previous Waterstones' Children's Book of the Month.
