Greenwich Book Festival

MG Leonard’s multi-award-nominated Beetle Boy introduced Darkus Cuttle and his quest – aided by a six-legged sidekick – to solve the mysterious disappearance of his beloved father from his workplace, the Natural History Museum. Its sequel, Beetle Queen, sees Darkus again pitted against his nemesis, the haute couture villainess Lucretia Cutter. Hear about the books, but also why MG Leonard loves beetles (though she used to be terrified of them), learn all the cool things beetles can do – and why EATING them could save the planet. Make it Beetlemania at the Greenwich Book Festival….
