Want a sci-fi story that combines elements of mystery and the study of insects, try Beetle Boy!

Just finished this with Seth, 9. A good old "whodunnit" but with genetics and entomology along the way. I've got an unexpected respect for beetles now! A fun, quirky read.

Joanne1 I tried this last year looking for some easy reads for my year 8 English students and never finished it. Sounds like I should have stuck with it. 3y
JillR I thought it was good but if pushed I think Seth would say he preferred Frank Cottrell Boyce, and he's also so hooked on Alex Rider is a little difficult to tempt him with anything else! 3y

If you pick up one book this year to read with children - make it this one! The most fantastic adventure story with an unusual but brilliant characters. Can't recommend it enough.

This is a thrilling adventure story for ages 8-10. It is packed with steadfast friends, imaginative adults, mad scientists and lots and lots of bugs.
