Leonard’s Beetle books are published by Chicken House in the UK and Scholastic in the US, Canada and Australia, as well as in more than 30 other territories including France, Germany, Italy, China and Russia, and have become global bestsellers.

Beetle Boy was published in 2016, followed by Beetle Queen in 2017 and Battle of the Beetles in 2018.

The trilogy begins with a 13-year-old boy’s search for his kidnapped father, leading him to discover a mountain of beetles and pitting him against a mad scientist.
