Dr Sarah Beynon is my scientific advisor. She reads my books and tells me if I get any beetle facts wrong. She runs The Bug Farm in Pembrokeshire. It's awesome. They do great educational work, and are fun to visit if you are on holiday in Wales. They have a great restaurant, The Grub Kitchen, where, if you are brave, there are a couple of buggy items on the menu.
