Big Honey Dog Mysteries #1: Curse of the Scarab

4.7 Stars (46 Reviews)
Genre: Children’s eBooks

Missing puppies. Deadly secrets. Serious slobber.

All Honey the Great Dane ever wanted was a peaceful life – walking her human, checking Peemail at the park – but the arrival of a puppy named Bean turns her life upside down. Then Bean goes missing, together with other neighborhood pups, and Honey sets out on a dangerous quest to find them. Joined by her canine friends, Honey tackles sinister paw prints and mysterious hieroglyphics as clues lead them to a deserted cemetery. But an ancient Egyptian curse has awakened and time is running out… Can Honey solve a cryptic riddle in time to save the pups? And should she trust Max, a Pit Bull with a murky past, who is hiding secrets of his own?


“D’you see what I’m seein’?” asked Ruffster in a hushed voice.

The others nodded. The soil on the other side of the memorial stone was freshly dug and raised in a shallow mound. Something had been buried here recently. Honey was scared to look and yet she had to know.

She started forwards but Ruffster blocked her way. “Mate–you crazy? Didn’t you read what it said about the curse?”

Honey couldn’t take her eyes off the mound. “I don’t care… I need to know if Bean… I need to know what’s buried under there.”

She pushed Ruffster out of the way and scrambled onto the mound. Ignoring the others, she started digging, her big paws raking the soft soil aside in huge sweeps. Fear churned in her stomach and dread lodged in her throat like a choking bone, but she kept on digging. Something appeared in the earth–something that gleamed. She dug faster, her breath coming in short bursts. A flash of colour, the tinkle of metal, the waxy smell of leather… The loose soil was brushed aside and Honey stood back to see what she had unearthed.

They lay in a pitiful heap, buckles rubbing, loops entwined. Pink and purple and red and blue. Soft leather and stretchy nylon. Cute cartoons and garish colours. Puppy collars.

“What happened to the puppies who were wearing them?” whispered Biscuit.

Ruffster glanced at Honey, who was staring fixedly at the pile. “Mate… er…d’you see…?”

Honey let out the breath she had been holding. “No, Bean’s collar isn’t here.” She swallowed. “But Biscuit’s right–what happened to these puppies? Where are they?”

“You reckon this could be linked to the other pups that have gone missin’?” Ruffster asked. He started towards Honey, then jumped back as if he had stepped on a hot plate. The ground beside Ruffster’s front paws trembled, then something shiny and black erupted from the crumbling soil.

“It’s one of those dead scarabs,” growled Tyson.

But as they watched, the shell suddenly moved and they saw six black legs wriggle to life.

“That ain’t no dead beetle,” said Ruffster, slowly backing away, his tail between his legs.

Tyson growled, his hackles raised, while Biscuit flinched backwards.

Honey looked in horror from left to right. Shiny black shapes were burrowing out of the soil all around them, clawing their way out on jointed legs covered with bristling black hairs. Each beetle had a domed head covered with a thick carapace from which a jagged mouthpart protruded. A sharp click-click-click sound filled the air. The soil around them roiled and vomited up more black shapes as hundreds of scarab beetles swarmed forwards around the huddled dogs.


They were trapped.
