    This book is essentially And Then There Were None told with insects It was humorous at moments, but it was very similar to the original, so I was a little bored with it.

    Ten Little Insects is a retelling of Agatha Christie s Ten Little Indians using bugs as main characters I enjoyed this graphic novel and found it quite humorous but don t know that it will appeal to the middle grade audience to which it s targeted This might be better enjoyed by older teens or young adults.

    When I first heard of 10 Little Insects at a recent CBCA conference in Adelaide, I thought it would be fun to read As I moved through the pages on a glum Saturday afternoon, I didn t expect to be sitting and giggling much to the mirth of my family.From the first pages of this new graphic novel, to the very end which I almost missed there was a lot to keep you laughing and musing about along the way In this whodunnit mystery, we follow the trails of 10 insects invited to Tortoise Islan When I first heard of 10 Little Insects at a recent CBCA conference in Adelaide, I thought it would be fun to read As I moved through the pages on a glum Saturday afternoon, I didn t expect to be sitting and giggling much to the mirth of my family.From the first pages of this new graphic novel, to the very end which I almost missed there was a lot to keep you laughing and musing about along the way In this whodunnit mystery, we follow the trails of 10 insects invited to Tortoise Island for a variety of curious reasons Each guest has come along with a different expectation of a weekend at an exclusive, but mysterious mansion on a secluded island.Unfortunately, one by one, they meet an untimely death reminiscent of Agatha Christie s And Then There Were None or Ten Little Indians as it was released in the US Of course they attempt to solve the mystery of individual deaths along the way, but as in any good Agatha Christie novel, the crimes aren t solved completely till the very end in an extremely humorous way 10 Little Insects was launched in Australia by Nicki Greenberg, a very clever Australian writer and illustrator, with an affinity for graphic novels You can read her comments from the launch, and thus understand why she was the ideal candidate to launch the book in Australia Read her comments carefully, especially when she implores try, if you possibly can, to slow down just a tiny bit Linger a little in the wonderful lush landscapes of the island and the fabulous interiors of the mansion Enjoy the clever use of space in the page layouts, the colours and textures, and the complex blocking required to portray so many characters interlocking conversations Nicki Greenberg, And since Nicki spoke so eloquently and effusively about this book, there is littleI can say except to recommend your read this, whenever you get the chance then read it again to pick up what you missed either in the clever illustrations of Vincent Pianina, Davide Cali s punctuating text the first time

    When 10 little insects receive invitations in the mail to attend an event on the infamous Tortoise Island, they re absolutely ecstatic From the promise of a luxurious singles weekend to the hopes of winning a swimming competition title, these insects all end up on the same fishing boat headed to the Island, but all whilst believing they re headed there for different events When the boat swiftly drops them off on the Island s edge, the story suddenly turns dark and mysterious The insects slowl When 10 little insects receive invitations in the mail to attend an event on the infamous Tortoise Island, they re absolutely ecstatic From the promise of a luxurious singles weekend to the hopes of winning a swimming competition title, these insects all end up on the same fishing boat headed to the Island, but all whilst believing they re headed there for different events When the boat swiftly drops them off on the Island s edge, the story suddenly turns dark and mysterious The insects slowly start dying in unpredictable ways and no one on the Island can seem to figure out who the culprit is The story takes the reader through countless different scenarios of who the killer could possibly be, all while constantly keeping them on their toes with plot twists hidden on every page.This graphic novel is laid out like a comic book, with multiple illustrations located inside various boxes scattered on the page There are little text bubbles that pop up alongside the characters so the reader is provided with dialogue and context throughout the whole story The illustrations use cartoons to convey the characters and scenery while filling them in with scribbles and smooth, bright colors The book uses suspense to take the reader through the mystery of who could be doing such heinous things to the poor insects This book is definitely gearedtowards older kids, since the subject matter is based on murders and ultimately trying to figure out who the killer is
