A collection of four Sherlock Holmes-inspired detective stories for young readers — with an all-insect cast of characters. Inspector Mantis, accompanied by his trusted colleague Doctor Hopper, solve antennae-bending mysteries featuring such unforgettable bugs as the relentless spring-cleaner Mrs. Inchworm, the bespectacled Professor Booklouse, the fearless Captain Flatfootfly, and the endearing Miss Allegra Warblefly.

Criminal detection, combined with the delightful characters of Bugland, makes this, in the words of The Horn Book, “the most engaging and cleverest reincarnation of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson yet.” This is a treat for any young reader who loves a funny mystery.

“Fantastically entertaining…. Colorful characters populate each mystery, which are funny, clever, and exciting by equal measure. A quirky homage to Sherlock that ably stands on is own two - or six - feet.” - Booklist
