What happens when the bug lab your mom works in is having a celebration with TV cameras and big shots-and there's a giant hissing cockroach named Max on the loose? Two brothers try banana peels, dog food, and everything else they can think of to catch the runaway roach. Will the advice of a mysterious stranger who tells them to "think like a bug" turn the tide? Will Max be too smart to get caught? Or will the whole celebration turn buggy?!

Fans of bugs, adventure, and surprises will enjoy every twist and squirm of this action-packed escapade.
