This is a wonderful story of friendship that will invite many varied retellings. It also contains helpful back matter about the importance of bees and how to attract and protect them.

Jay mixes soaring spreads, smaller panels, and kicky spot images to clearly convey the story visually...A closing note points to the plight of the dwindling honeybee population and suggests plants that readers can grow to help bee populations.
