About the Book

Meet Bee Happy as he tries to solve a problem which has got everyone in the bee hive buzzing mad! His friends Bee Cool and Bee Green cannot seem to help as the Queen struggles to find her glasses leaving all the baby bees without their bedtime story. When the Queen is upset, everyone in the bee hive is upset too! The book encourages young children aged 4 years to 8 years to develop a positive image about bees, and by introducing each Bee character, create a whole family of Bees for children to love. Bee Happy always sees the world in a positive way, and he helps the Queen look for her glasses - you will have to read the book to find out if he succeeds. The pictures in the book are great and have been drawn to create human characteristics for children to relate to. Look out for future books in the series, our next story is about Bee Safe!

About the Author

I am 16 and love reading, books and writing. I have little experience of writing, although I have done some pieces for The Times newspaper last summer, on their `Young Times' section. I am in charge of Public Relations at Buzzword and so deal with the local press and the publicity of our events and products. I live locally in Taunton, and study further maths, English literature, history and economics at the college. I felt really inspired by the subject of bees because previously I had known very little about them, but through group discussions about their disappearance and Colony Collapse Disorder, I couldn't believe that more wasn't being done to help them out! I aimed my book at 5-7 year olds because between us the company decided that it was an age where children began to become aware of the world around them and environmental issues such a recycling and global warming. Having a seven year old brother myself, I could see a necessity to eradicate his fear of bees, as they really are friendly creatures! Through the company, I have developed a desire to educate about bees, and I think that the book would be a wonderful place to start!
