Plucky young Buster Bee is headed to school and he's nervous about his first day. At school, he meets his new teacher and feels special when she teaches the class all about being a bee. When it seems that Too Smart Betty has all the answers, Buster wants to be a solitary bee who lives in the country instead of a social bee. He has great adventures in the country but ends up feeling lonely with a stomachache. The witty narrative, with bountiful critter jargon, boisterous interjections, and plenty of humor, makes for a fun read-aloud, and colorful artwork captures the antics of the critters with playful perspectives and hilarious details. Nonstop action, good-natured critters, and a comical view of going to school and making friends will attract critter aficionados, older siblings, moms, and dads alike.
The wonderfully crafted story is paired with energetic illustrations of a colorful cast of critters and playful scenes.
