Revenge of the Beetle Queen
Virginia, Bertolt, and Darkus are beetle collectors. They bring their beetles with them almost everywhere, even when they have to hide them in order to bring them. Lucretia Cutter wants to steal beetles because she uses beetles to spy on other people. Virginia, Bertolt, and Darkus’s dad is determined to stop Lucretia, and when he follows her to Los Angeles where she is going to a film award ceremony, the kids follow along with Uncle Max. While in LA, they visit an entomologist to ask questions about Lucretia and why she is stealing the beetles. Will Virginia, Bertolt, and Darkus be able to figure out Lucretia’s plan and stop her?
This is a very interesting book. It gave a lot of information about beetles and entomology as well as being an exciting mystery. One of the helpful things in this book is that there is an “Entomologist’s Dictionary” that helps because there are a lot of insect-specific words that many people wouldn’t know. If you are looking for a unique book or really like insects, then this is the book for you.
