If youve been crying out for a book featuring a stick insect famous for doing impressions of sticks, a detective with a sidekick whos a three-week old larva, a preying mantis whos deadly with a drinks trolley and a fly whos just there for the dung, then your luck has finally turned!
10 Little Insects is a hilarious riff on that celebrated whodunnit, Agatha Christies 10 Little Indians.
In this innovative graphic novel for middle readers and upwards, ten very different insects, each with something to hide, are brought together to a mysterious house on a secluded island for the weekend. Then, one by one, very unusual things start happening to them ...
But all is not as it seems, as Cali and Pianina delightfully subvert the whodunnit genre with a story that is at once brilliant, baffling, laugh-out-loud funny and somewhat surreal.
