Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: A hungry bear discovers that bees are not terrible monsters who never share their honey.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2013 March #1
    Bear wakes up hungry from hibernation, and the only food source in sight is a beehive. When the bee on top of the hive offers up his honey, Bear says, But what about the bee? See, Bear doesn't actually know what a bee is—it's certainly not the creature he is talking to—and his preconceived notions about bees include that they're terrible monsters! with large teeth and sharp claws. As Bee rightly points out, Bear has large teeth and sharp claws. This leads to the funniest moment in the book, when Bear has a horrific realization: I AM A BEE! Of course, all is sorted in the end, and honey is shared. This sweet, if slight, story cleverly begins on the endpapers, which depict snowfall, followed by a hibernating bear, and then a thaw on the title page. Ruzzier's unlikely friends, rendered in pen-and-ink and colored digitally, are charmers with stylish taste in footwear: Bee wears nothing but high-tops and Bear, red slides. The anti-snap-judgment message is wrapped in cuteness, making it just right for the preschool set. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.
