Queen Bee by Julian Popescu
story of life in the hive. Suitable for beekeepers to read to children
QUEEN BEE rules her hive without mercy. The female bees work
ceaselessly. The male drones such as Tom and Harold are rude and
lazy. Old bees are pushed out of the hive and left to die. The guard
-bees perish, fighting earwigs and other more deadly enemies which
attack the hive in pursuit of honey.
But the most
dangerous enemy is the weather for without an adequate stock of
honey for the winter the bees will die.
And then there
is the final terrifying battle which Bella must fight with a new
rival, the young enchanting Queen Vanessa, a battle which almost
destroys them all.
