Illustrated by Charlotte Voake

A boy wonders what honeybees do all day – and they offer to show him! Charlotte Voake delivers a delightful story filled with whimsy and wonder.

On a warm spring day, a curious boy watches the bees go back and forth from their hive. To his surprise, he hears tiny voices – the honeybees have a magic bee suit just for him! The next minute, the boy is the same size as Bella, Beatrice and the rest of the sociable bees, ready to spend the day learning all about them. And when the day is over, the boy has an idea of his own about how to make his new friends’ lives even sweeter. Playful collage illustrations bring to life this buzzy adventure from beloved author-illustrator Charlotte Voake.

  • A new story from beloved British storyteller Charlotte Voake, author-illustrator of books like Ginger and Some Dinosaurs are Small.
  • Features a totally new art style from Charlotte Voake, who works in a colourful cut paper collage style.
  • Bees charm and fascinate all of us! This is a dazzling celebration of these fuzzy insects and the importance of bees to our planet.
