Discovering an open ink bottle in eleven-year-old James's room one night, Marvin, a young beetle, is overcome with the urge to draw. James's father, an artist, sees the resulting drawing and likens it to the work of Renaissance master Albrecht Dürer. Thinking James is the artist, he whisks James, the drawing, and-unwittingly-Marvin off to the Dürer exhibit at the Met. Then, surprisingly, the curator asks James to make a decoy drawing to help catch a thief with a penchant for stealing Dürers. Fortunately, Marvin is willing to help. Author's note. Black-and-white illustrations.
