Whether she's sipping nectar from beautiful flowers, avoiding hungry birds and fish, dancing with a butterfly, or bravely protecting her entire hive from a big bear with an even bigger appetite, this honeybee is always on the move. Eric Carle's updated classic features truly inspired feats of paper engineering, including a galloping bear and a spectacular butterfly that looks as if it will take off at any moment. There's not a gratuitous pop-up, flap, or movable piece of art in the book; readers will gasp with delight at every page, with every reading. The charming story is still a showcase for Carle's distinctive collages, in delectable golds, earthy greens, shimmering blues, and warm browns. This version is smaller than the original, and the text has been revised slightly, with younger readers in mind. A clever new interactive cover allows children to make the villain bear's eyes cross as the angry looking bee stings his nose.
Carle's bold, appealing style is known and loved by happy readers everywhere, who return again and again to The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Very Quiet Cricket, The Grouchy Ladybug, and his many other very popular titles. (Preschool) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
