The Lovereading4Kids comment

A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.

A perfectly constructed picture book with a terrific, table turning ending is beautifully produced in this handsome edition. The Little Bee hurries through the pages pursued by a frog, a snake a mongoose and more. But what happens when he meets the fierce hunter? Wonderful illustrations carry the wit of the story effortlessly.

Lovereading4kids comment:

A new series of picture books to launch the brand new imprint from Templar Publishing: Brubaker, Ford and Friends. Edward Gibbs is an exciting new artist for Templar with a bold, colourful illustration style. This title features a large gatefold flap on the final spread. With absolutely beautiful production values coupled with some talented artists, this new imprint deserves to flourish.

Other titles scheduled in the first half of 2011 in this recently launched imprint include: The Acorn by the same author, That Dog! by Nanette Newman, Turtle and Me by Robi Harris and What will you be Grandma? by Emma Chichester Clark and Nanette Newman.


Little Bee by Edward Gibbs

The chase is on! Follow Little Bee as he flees from the hungry frog, who in turn flees from the scary snake, who in turn flees from the mean mongoose, and so on until a whole host of creatures are running around in one big circle.
