All the animals are running away, but what are they afraid of? Find out in this action-packed book that will have all little children wanting to turn the pages and join in. It's simple, it's fun, it's thought provoking, and the surprise ending brings it right back to the beginning - to be enjoyed all over again!

Graphic designer and illustrator Edward Gibbs has always sought to communicate meaningful ideas in the simplest way. With a seemingly effortless touch, in this book and its companion The Acorn, he introduces educational themes and concepts (food chains, fear, ecosystems) in a visual, fun, and satisfying romp for the very young.




About the Author

Edward Gibbs studied illustration and graphic design in New Zealand before moving to London, where he has worked as a graphic designer for over twenty-five years. His love of nature and the animal kingdom inspired him to write and illustrate I Spy With My Little Eye, Little Bee, and Little Acorn Grows Up.




Praise For Little Bee

Praise for Little Bee:
A CBC Best Children's Books of 2013 selection
* "Audiences will immediately catch on to the pattern in the sprightly, simple Q&A couplets... and the punchline has genuine, amusing, and audience-suitable punch...The figures are comic enough to take the tension out of the pursuit, but they're still high-impact and expressive presences who seem as ready to jump off of the page as jump into the next spread."—BCCB (starred review)
