Synopsis: Mystery and adventure fill this intriguing modern fantasy--a companion to X.J. Kennedy's The Owlstone Crown. The rumor that giant killer bees, six feet long, are invading the country, is confirmed when Mustard, the half-brother of the Tibb twins is kidnapped by the bees. This sometimes scary, frequently hilarious story builds to a rousing conclusion.

From School Library Journal: Grade 3-6. Twins Tim and Verity Tibbs are joined by half-brother Mustard in this companion fantasy adventure to The Owlstone Crown (Atheneum, 1983; o.p.). On Other Earth, animals communicate with humans and the magnificent Moonflower produces limitless nectar. As the children are enjoying a picnic, giant honeybees swoop down, abducting young Mustard. Are they from the fabled April Fool Isle, home of Meadea, queen of the bees, and a legendary eagle? When a ransom note arrives from Meadea demanding exclusive rights to the Moonflower's nectar, Grandfather Tibbs recruits detective Lewis Ladybug to crack the case, while the twins gather clues. Accompanied to their new boarding school by their bodyguard, a Kodiak bear, the duo discovers that Headmaster Drone and Mademoiselle Stinger are teaching bee-like subjects, including nectar-straining and hive-building. Once Tim and Verity uncover the bee-stly kidnapping plot, they escape to April Fool Isle, where they are aided by the enormous bird. They use its invisibility oil to enter Queen Meadea's hive undetected, rescue Mustard, and (whew!) vanquish the evil Drone. Narrated by Tim, with occasional comments from Verity, the story conveys the immediacy of high adventure. Marvelously colorful characterization combines with a dangling-by-a-fraying-rope plot to create humor, tension, and interest. An enticing fantasy for youngsters, and a captivating read-aloud for anyone, everyone.?Sarabeth Kalajian, Venice Public Library, FL
