A cold snap has blown into town like an unwanted house pest. But there's only one guy in the bug city with the power to put crime permanently on ice: Joey Fly, Private Eye. He's always on the lookout for trouble, and he runs into it when he meets Harry Spyderson, proprietor of the Scarab Beetle Theatre and director of the much-anticipated Bugliacci.

Greta Divawing, the four-winged, long-legged leading lady, has gone missing. Harry hires Joey Fly and his assistant, Sammy Stingtail to crack the case. Can they find Greta in time to save the show?

About The Author

Aaron Reynolds hates spiders, but he loves bugs and books. He has written several books for kids, including Chicks and Salsa. Aaron lives near Chicago with his family.

Neil Numberman is okay with flies and ladybugs, but he's deathly afraid of cockroaches. He graduated from the MFA Illustration program at the School of Visual Arts and lives in Manhattan.

Praise for CREEPY CRAWLY CRIME: "The plot, characters, and setting in this graphic novel are all inspired from the novels of hardboiled-detective legends Hammett and Chandler, but Reynolds expertly injects a buggy layer of hilarious high jinks. Numberman takes it one step further by using the dark color schemes most associated with film noir combined with clean, detailed art. Kids will get caught in the web of this classic mystery cleverly disguised as a simple bug's tale."--"Booklist" "Kids just getting into detective capers will enjoy the bug-related gags, medium-boiled dialogue, and Joey Fly's droll voice-over narration. Numberman's shifting color schemes and clean, expressive artwork enhance the noirish atmosphere." - Booklist
