Review Quotes:

* "In bouncy, lilting verse and vibrant, inviting artwork, this ode to the humble honeybee is dripping with charm.... Hall's lively lines skitter around Arsenault's warm, honey-colored illustrations.... With occasional speech balloons and delightfully expressive gestures, the bees mirror the gleeful tone of the poem.... Arsenault's scenes are a captivating mixture of smudgy charcoals, soft yellows, and fluoresecent oranges, combining crisp shapes with more abstract figures. The entertaining tone and freewheeling art are a pure joy, but there's plenty of science here, too, and a closing note about the importance of bees to our ecosystem brings the point home. Boisterously written, gorgeously illustrated, and sneakily educational."-- "Booklist, February 2018, *STARRED REVIEW*"
