Editorial Reviews

Review

"Illustrated with soft, watercolor-style artwork throughout, author Reg Down's The Bee Who Lost His Buzz is a soft cover anthology of short stories about Tiptoes and Jeremy Mouse, who help friends including the Bee whose buzz has been taken away by the cantankerous Mr. Cactus, the Worm who can't make his way home on his own, a tangled young Octopus who can only count to seven, and more creatures. Each warmhearted mini-tale blends into the next, making The Bee Who Lost His Buzz flow into a captivating whole. The Bee Who Lost His Buzz is ideal for teaching children how much fun reading can be." --Midwest Book Review

Format: Paperback
We've been involved in Waldorf education for the past three years when our daughter entered kindergarten and I can't believe that we've only recently discovered the wonderful books of Reg Down.

Tiptoes and her friends share many wonderful adventures together and this book is an excellent introduction. Whereas the other Tiptoes Lightly books feature black and white line drawings, this one is full of amazing watercolor illustrations. They are engaging enough for our seven-year-old and three-year-old.

Our three-year-old even asks for these stories at bedtime and likes to pretend to be several of the character - mainly Jeremy Mouse and Pine Cone (and I'm Pepper Pot because I like pepper too).

Having known and loved Reg Down's stories for years, I was delighted to find this gorgeous picture book, a perfect introduction for my young niece, who was instantly drawn in by the vivid watercolor illustrations, and then enchanted by the story.
The artwork is truly as beautiful as the tale.- More, please!

My three year old and I love to read these stories. They are very descriptive and full of charm. I look forward to reading more of Reg Down's books and following the tales of the fairy, Tiptoes Lightly.
