  • not his best work. Kind of like he was under contract to get "x" amount of words out.

  • Be forewarned. The paperback version has no illustrations! I was so disappointed. On top of that the the stories were very boring. I think those with hardcovers will be more enthused, but avoid the paperback!

  • I ordered 5 of copies of the this book. We used it in a mother-daughter book club this summer. We visited a bee keeper, tasted many types of raw honey and honey comb. We learned many new things about the health benefits of honey.
    Some discussions that this book sparked:
    Are bees our friends too?
    Living things that are transformed in nature
    What animals transform food they eat into foods for people
    What is the difference between being magically transformed and being transformed through growth?

    The illustrations are beautiful. The Disc that comes with shows the artistic process. My children and myself found that very interesting.

  • This is a great story. I got the book because I am doing research for a bee book of my own - about colony collapse disorder. This was a fun one that I found out about in another book, one by a woman who is a beekeeper. I'm glad I read it, and that I got to see Maurice Sendak's drawings.

  • Something random made me remember this story, and so of course I turned to Amazon to find it. It was a joy to reread it again, and several others that I had read, but that I did not remember. The author has a wonderful way with words, and there is enough reality in his stories that the fantasy part is believable. The short stories are easily read in 10-20 minutes, so they are well worth it for a brief moment of "me time." Enjoy!

  • This is a charming and thought-provoking story I wish I had known about long ago. Like all of the best children's material it speaks also on an adult level. Sendak's characteristically whimsical, yet rich and slightly mysterious illustrations complement the story beautifully.

  • Fun read; well done whimsy with a small lesson at the end of each story.

  • Print way too SMALL. Very hard to read.
