Maya the Bee 5+

Waldemar Bonsels

A very special bee is born in the beehive. She is given the name of Maya. Cassandra the teacher wants, in a nice way, to teach her the rules, but Maya resists. The fragrant solar light is stunning and she does not care about the order of the bees. She is too curious and it is drawing her out into the picturesque world. She meets a stick insect, a dung beetle, a fly, a caterpillar, a ladybird, two hornets, a spider, and a dragonfly. She marvels complex relations and the beauty of the world and overcomes dangers. She gets caught in the spider’s net, but her friend the dung beetle saves her. The hornets take her to their camp and Maya realizes that she is the only one who can save her home hive. Brave, honest and experienced enough now, the little bee is just the right hero for that job.
