10 Little Insects

A Hilarious Whodunnit

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

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.

Publishers Weekly Review

22 April 2013 – Younger readers may not be familiar with Christie’s Ten Little Indians, but they’ll be hooked by the plot gambit of trapping a group of suspects in a mansion and knocking them off one by one—if they can stand all the corpses, that is. French writer Cali (The Great House Hunt) minimizes the trauma by casting insects as the victims, which also affords him opportunities for poo humor (about a fly: “He must have run into some dung and decided to stop for a snack!”) and macabre jokes. “I’ve never done anything bad apart from tearing off my husband’s head before eating him,” says Mrs. Mantis, one of the servants. Too bad—she’s the next to go. Pianina’s fine lines, candy-colored palette, and stage-set mansion backgrounds offer Krazy Kat–style whimsy, while the charming detective Gafard anchors the story, delivering traditional whodunit deductions: “And who’s to say that the murderer is one of us?” Though the ending doesn’t entirely satisfy—the whole fiasco is the fault of bureaucratic error—it still delivers engaging, Continental-style entertainment, with echoes of Hergé along with Christie. Ages 9–12.
