A book about a friendship, a painting, and a criminal. Marvin is a beetle. James is a boy. When Marvin creates a beautiful picture for James' Birthday, everyone thinks it's James that drew it. Now they need the pair to draw a masterpiece to catch the criminal!! I enjoyed this book and can relate to Marvin and the way his parents treat him.
