The Book of Bees

Publisher: Thames & Hudson

Bees are amazing. They make honey, build their own homes and perform a special dance telling each other where the juiciest flowers grow. Everyone loves them - from the Roman Empress who bathed in honey to the farmers in Africa who use them to protect their crops from elephants.

This glorious book will introduce you to the bee world. It is fantastically illustrated in a cartoonish style that is big, bold and will appeal to all ages of reader. As well as being encyclopaedic, it is great fun - featuring recipes and a little bee newspaper, the Daily Buzz.

The text is smart and funny, full of fascinating facts that will introduce you to the wonderful bee world that spans from the dinosaurs to the Ancient Egyptians.
