Synopsis

Bee-wigged by Cece Bell

This title offers a sweet and funny take on the problem of being yourself and finding new friends. Jerry Bee has always had trouble making friends. People are scared of an enormous bee and run away as soon as they see him, until one day he picks up a wig and finds that attitudes suddenly change. With his wonderful new disguise, Jerry dares to go to school for the first time. His new classmates love him. They even make him Grand Marshal in the school parade. It's all going so well - until a strong wind blows the wig right off Jerry's head! Is this the end of Jerry's new-found friendships? No...Jerry has made one unexpected friend, who is about to speak up and save the day! Cece Bell's kitsch, contemporary artwork has strong cross-over appeal. From the reowned author of Sock Monkey Goes to Hollywood (9780744598506) comes a hilarious tale of friendship and acceptance that is certain to make you smile.
