Graphic designer and illustrator Edward Gibbs has always sought to communicate meaningful ideas in the simplest way. With a seemingly effortless touch, in this book and its companion "The Acorn," he introduces educational themes and concepts (food chains, fear, ecosystems) in a visual, fun, and satisfying romp for the very young.

Praise for Little Bee:
A CBC Best Children's Books of 2013 selection
* "Audiences will immediately catch on to the pattern in the sprightly, simple Q&A couplets... and the punchline has genuine, amusing, and audience-suitable punch...The figures are comic enough to take the tension out of the pursuit, but they're still high-impact and expressive presences who seem as ready to jump off of the page as jump into the next spread."—BCCB (starred review)
