Double Trouble in Bugland(2016)
(A book in the Inspector Mantis Mysteries series)
A collection of stories by William Kotzwinkle
Inspector Mantis, Dr. Hopper, and their creeping, crawling coterie return for another series of thrilling tales in this long awaited sequel to Trouble in Bugland-and this time they're facing more deadly foes than ever. These four new adventures will once again have readers of all ages laughing aloud, while gasping with horror. In these Sherlockian escapades, one meets unforgettable bugs such as the relentless spring-cleaner Mrs. Inchworm, the bespectacled Professor Booklouse, the fearless Captain Flatfootfly, and the pleasant Miss Allegra Warblefly. Many others help along the way, providing clues, witty conversation, and candy to fuel Inspector Mantis and Dr. Hopper's Holmesean efforts to defeat the devious lepidopterans and arthropods. Joe Servello's vibrant color illustrations, paired with hilarious dialogue from Bill Kotzwinkle compel readers to faithfully follow along as this all-insect cast pursues justice.
