If you've been crying out for a book featuring a stick insect famous for doing impressions of sticks, a detective with a sidekick who's a three-week old larva, a preying mantis who's deadly with a drinks trolley and a fly who's just there for the dung, then your luck has finally turned! 10 Little Insects is a hilarious riff on that celebrated whodunnit, Agatha Christie's 10 Little Indians. In this innovative graphic novel for younger readers, ten very different insects, each with something to hide, are brought together to a mysterious house on a secluded island for the weekend. Then, one by one, they start dying in very unusual circumstances. But all is not as it seems, as Cali and Pianina delightfully subvert the whodunnit genre with a story that is at once brilliant, baffling, laugh-out-loud funny and somewhat surreal.
