Synopsis: Active Synapse proudly presents the only official hardcover edition of the award-winning Clan Apis! The life cycle and natural environment of the honeybee becomes the story kernel for Dr. Jay Hosler, a professor of biology as well as a cartoonist and storyteller. Opening with a honeybee-centered creation myth, we work through the many real biological, sociological, and ecological changes affecting the life of Nyuki, a brand new honeybee. The interior pages are fully illustrated with clean lines in crisp black and white. The text itself is a combination of authoritative science wrapped in a witty dialogue replete with humor, pubescent angst, terrible puns, heart-warming charm, and so much more. Nyuki matures as her colony undertakes migration to a new hive, is beset upon by enemies, and hibernates through a winter that yields to a revitalizing spring. The bee characters are nicely individualized as are the friendly plants and other talking insects that figure into their lives. All in all, this is the sort of wholesome story that will appeal to everyone, readers and non-readers alike, while sneaking in a little science education as a bonus. Suitable for all ages and makes an excellent gift.

About the Author: Dr. Jay Hosler is an Associate Professor of Biology at Juniata College and an award-winning cartoonist who writes and draws comic books about biology and natural history. His work has been called "ingenious" (The London Times), "goofily inventive" (The New York Times), and "entertaining and slyly educational" (The Comics Journal). His works include Active Synapse classics such as Clan Apis, The Sandwalk Adventures, and Optical Allusions.

Book Description Active Synapse. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Jay Hosler (illustrator). Hardcover. 162 pages. Dimensions: 11.0in. x 8.5in. x 0.4in.Although years of rock em, sock em adventures have branded comic books as lightweight entertainment for children, Jay Hosler has staged a valiant defense of the medium. In his hands, cartooning becomes exciting education. Clan Apis ingeniously reworks the plot conventions of the musty old action comic as Hosler sneaks a lot of lessons about bee anatomy, behaviour, and ecology into his brisk story. - Discover Magazine This item ships from multiple locations.
