Review Quote:

 "Glorious illustrations and engaging text combine . . . The vivid oil paint illustrations include minute details and, at times, seem indistinguishable from photographs. The pictures align perfectly with the text, showing the honeybee hard at work at various tasks. . . . this offering will captivate audiences. --Booklist , Starred Review
