We hear much about the plight of the bumble bee population and its implications for our planet's future. This picture book makes the story personal and brings a message of hope. A little girl befriends a bee, which takes her on a journey of discovery.
For the first time, Alison Jay illustrates her own storyline. Her love of nature and sympathy for the smallest creatures comes to the fore as she wordlessly tells the story of a growing friendship and understanding between a little girl and a bumble bee. Given free rein at last, her artwork is colourful and expressive and gently brings children to an understanding of the relationship between the human world and our natural environment.
