The Lovereading4Kids comment

Simply structured, beautifully illustrated and handsomely produced as a board book, this is a perfect picture book to share with the very youngest listener. ‘Little bee, little bee why do you flee?’. The answer unfolds dramatically as a one boldly illustrated animal after another is chased across each spread.


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. The surprise ending brings you right back to the beginning when you realise that a hunter is fleeing from the little bee.
