The Bear and the Bees ITV Daybreak Winner by Ella Richardson


The Bear and the Bees ITV Daybreak Winner by Ella Richardson

On Gruzzle the bear's first day at Bee School, the other pupils are none too friendly. They look the same as each other, sound the same as each other and even all have the same name! It's just poor old Gruzzle who is different, and he sticks out like a sore thumb. But Gruzzle is not a bear who is easily deterred. He hatches a plan to show those beastly bees that there's nothing wrong with being yourself ...whatever that may be!
