's review

it was amazing

** spoiler alert ** I read this aloud to my son at bedtime (6 turning 7 in a month). It took a chunk of time, and making the voices distinct was fun and tricky!

I asked him to give me the review, so the 5 stars is his (I'd have given it 4, but the book was for him).


Boy called Darkus found a beetle and had 2 friends, blew up the emporium, and got his dad back and Lauretta Cutter got away.

I liked them building Basecamp.
