MINNEAPOLIS--(S.W.I.T.C.H., an ingenious series written by Ali Sparkes, illustrated by Ross Collins, and published by Darby Creek, a division of Lerner Publishing Group, follows eight-year-old twins Josh and Danny on their adventures through the bug world.)--
Josh loves bugs. Danny loathes them. After a run-in with Miss Petty Potts, the mad scientist next door, and her S.W.I.T.C.H. serum (Serum Which Initiates Total Cellular Hijack), Josh and Danny find they’ve turned into bugs for real!
Read all the S.W.I.T.C.H. titles:
#1 Spider Stampede—When Josh and Danny accidentally stumble on the crazy neighbor Miss Potts's secret—an experiment that changes people into bugs—they find themselves in a trouble. Can the boys survive as spiders? And more important, will they change back in time for dinner?
#2 Fly Frenzy—When Danny and Josh’s mom's garden is ruined the day before the neighborhood competition, the twins turn into bluebottle houseflies to take matters into their own two hands...or rather, into their six legs. Can they find the culprits before it's too late?
#3 Grasshopper Glitch—Danny and Josh thought today would be just like any other day. Of course, they didn't expect to accidentally turn into grasshoppers in the middle of class! Can they avoid being eaten while they search for the antidote?
#4 Ant Attack—Danny and Josh were having a great day until Tarquin came over. Tarquin dresses like he's fifty-five, doesn't do anything fun, and pulls the legs off of bugs. When the twins turn into ants by accident, things get much worse! Can Danny and Josh find a safe place to hide until they turn human again?
#5 Crane Fly Crash—Leave it to the nutty scientist Petty Potts to put S.W.I.T.C.H. spray in a bottle identical to their sister Jenny's hairspray. When Danny and Josh's big, annoying sister transforms into a little, annoying crane fly, it's up to them to keep Jenny from being eaten alive.
#6 Beetle Blast—A fluke encounter at a wildlife and nature group meeting turns both brothers into beetles just in time to learn all about pond-dipping...from the bug's perspective! Can Danny and Josh avoid becoming part of an insect collection?
