STICKS, DUST AND STRIPES
New Danish children's book about the WILD LIFE OF WILD BEERS
Do bees have three eyes in their foreheads? How much does a bee sting hurt? Can bees talk to each other? Why do some flowers smell of bee foot sweat?
Together with the authors, Beate Strandberg and Pernille Eskildsen and accompanied by Kamilla Wichmann's beautiful drawings, we follow the short and absolutely fantastic lives of wild bees. You come into their nests. You meet their worst enemies, and you learn to tell the difference between bees, wasps and hoverflies.
