Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review A fast moving text and real bee facts woven into the story - picked as one of the books to watch * The Bookseller * An educational and entertaining book that keeps you hooked but never stops feeding you the facts * The Book Bag * An unlikely story but so well written that you will immediately engage with it. Superbly illustrated (in black and yellow, of course!), this is the highly entertaining story of an unlikely superhero * Parents in Touch * Bee Boy is a great way to introduce children to the fascinating world of bees and would be an ideal gift to lovers of nature and non-fiction. * Books for Keeps * Conservation, friendship and the joys of mastering unusual skills are interwoven with verbal and visual humour. * The Guardian *
