Sting

By Raymond Huber

The thrilling adventure tale of a young honey bee on a mission to explore life outside of the hive and discover the secret of his true identity.

Ziggy’s not your average bee in a box. Life’s pretty sweet in the hive, but he knows he’s different from the other bees. When Ziggy leaves Bee City to find out why, he soon learns that the truth can sting.

  • Presents contemporary environmental and anti-war issues in an exciting and uniquely engaging adventure story.
  • Strong themes of identity and difference demonstrating that, no matter how small, one person can make a difference.
  • Strong ‘boy’ appeal with a great mix of action, adventure and science.
