Darkus Cuttle’s dad is missing, vanished from his job at the Natural History Museum, and now everything for Darkus is about to change.

Miserable and lonely, he is forced to move in with his eccentric Uncle Max, next door to the most disgusting neighbours ever and their beetle-infested house.

But when a giant beetle called Baxter comes to his rescue, Darkus learns that these are no ordinary creatures. They’re an incredible super-species and they could just be the key to solving the mystery of his dad’s disappearance.

When links begin to emerge connecting the crime with mad scientist and fashionista Lucretia Cutter, and her penchant for beetle jewellery, Darkus, Baxter and the other beetles are caught in a race against time to find the answers.

My daughter loves her new voxblock and listens to the stories over and over again. Wonderful product and have already recommended to friends. Love the mini books too and the fact there's no wifi. My 6 year old daughter was able to use it directly from the box with no input from me..it was charged and ready to go!




It’s a robust quality product. It’s simple for my 5 year old grandson to use. He loves listening to the wide range of literature available.
