The Lovereading4Kids comment
Twins Josh and Danny have been turned into diving beetles! Pond life is scary enough because of what’s in the pond but something much more scary – and dangerous – is outside! How the twins save themselves is a gripping read. Josh and Danny become involved in another of Petty Potts's mad schemes to try out her S.W.I.T.C.H formula. Soon the boys are beetling about in a pond, breathing underwater, and creating the most almighty stench to scare off predators. But pond life is the least of their problems. A mysterious stranger is hanging around and he's out to get them.
About the series:
Boy or insect? Twins Josh and Danny survive a series of thrilling adventures after they have been transformed into bug life by the crazy scientist Petty Potts who injects them with a most unusual serum. How insect-loving Josh and insect-hating Danny survive the dangers of the bugs’ world in a series of adventures as spiders, grasshoppers, flies and ants makes thrilling reading as well as a great introduction into how insects may feel.

Beetle Blast (S.W.I.T.C.H. 6) by Ali Sparkes
Josh and Danny are on a day out with the local nature group, but when they accidentally eat a chocolate muffin laced with S.W.I.T.C.H formula, they experience the real dangers of pond life first hand. Soon the boys are beetling about in a pond, breathing underwater, and creating the most almighty stench to scare off predators. But life as a pongy pond beetle is the least of their problems-there's a mysterious stranger hanging around-and he's out to get them. Will Josh and Danny find out who the stranger is before it's too late? And can they help Petty Potts in her mission to recover all of the REPTOSWITCH cubes so she can turn them into even more exciting beasties? Petty Potts's diary entry: I do hope Josh and Danny will come round tomorrow-they have to understand the DANGER we're all in! And of course, I really need their help. I'm sure I will manage to talk them around. After all, they both can't wait to try out being a giant python or an alligator or a monitor lizard.
