Kindergarten-Grade 3—This title addresses apiphobia—the fear of bees—and is about as subtle as a bee sting. Without much introduction, a boy and a bee alternately discuss, in verse, whether children should be frightened by bees, or whether perhaps it's the bees that should be afraid of humans. Facts about the insects—pollen, life in the hive, etc.—are juxtaposed with the boy's mother's suggestions on how to avoid the creatures. In the end, the bee shows the child how wonderful it is to become friends and understand one another instead of being afraid: "Remember the lesson…. Life starts where fear ends." The illustrations make this book. An artist's note explains that rough-textured watercolor paper is painted and then each object cut out and arranged at different heights and angles to create shadows, and then photographed. The results are extraordinary. Too bad the text doesn't come close. The inside covers contain a collection of bee riddles and humorously named bees, which is probably the best textual element. It would be nice to recommend this title to bee phobics but it's just a little too treacly to succeed.—Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City
