The Beetle Show with M.G. Leonard

Think you know the humble beetle? What about the Bombardier, who shoots acid from its bum? Or the Horned Dung Beetle, the strongest creature in the natural world?
Come and discover the wonderful world of beetles with M. G. Leonard. Awesome facts and funny stories guaranteed! M.G. Leonard was afraid of beetles before she discovered how amazing they are. She is the author of the award-winning Beetle Boy series, and The Beetle Collector's Handbook (Scholastic), a non-fiction companion to the trilogy.
