I don't really like talking animal books, and I'm not a fan of mysteries, so this wasn't the book for me. The story is about Marvin, a beetle living in a New York apartment with his family, who gets involved with the 11 year old son of the house when Marvin draws a picture using the boy's ink, and eeryone thinks young James has drawn the tiny masterpiece. Marvin and James get involved in an elaborate art heist, and end up trying to solve the mystery themselves. I'll confess I didn't really read this book, more skimmed it, and I'm giving it the third star based on the fact that I think it will appeal more to kids than it did to me.
