Grade 2-4-- Spider Kane is an insect detective extraordinaire. He has gathered a crew of followers under the "Order of the MOTH" (Mission: Only To Help). His lieutenants have been sent a letter summoning them to a secret meeting at the Jumbo Nightcrawler's jazz club on the waterfront. Events unfold rapidly. The golden treasure of the ants disappears, and Mimi Butterfly and La Mere Leafwing are kidnapped. Walter Dogtick and Leon Leafwing are frantic. At last, Spider Kane, intrepid veteran of the Mosquito Wars, appears to lead the remaining MOTH crew in a dangerous venture back to the waterfront. Villainous Saratoga D'Bee summons her henchmen, the sinister hornets, but in the end they prove no match for the keen wits of Spider Kane. Puns, quips, and imaginative language enliven this chapter book; clues to the mystery abound. This title follows Spider Kane and the Mystery under the May-Apple (Knopf, 1993), but it can stand alone .
