The Shakespeare's Secret author writes a tale about a beetle who is truly an artist. Melvin discovers his talent when he uses a pen and ink set to create a beautiful sketch of the world outside the window of the apartment where he lives with his beetle family.

The sketch brings the two together and sets them on an adventure and mystery when priceless artwork is stolen from the Metropolitan Museum of art. 3rd grade to middle school readers.
