Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2--Buzz Bumble enjoys all the attention he receives for being the fastest and most talented bee in the hive. When he hears that the photographer Ansel Antennae is coming to take photos for National Bee-Graphic magazine, he wants to catch the eye of the famous guy. Then cute little Baby Bumble steals the show with her frilly antennae and toddling ways and Buzz feels envious, angry, and unloved. As Ansel is snapping his shutters at Baby, a Venus flytrap snaps her up. Jealousy aside, Buzz zips into action and saves her in the nick of time. Ansel clicks a photo of the twosome for the cover of the magazine and sibling love prevails. Newton's cartoon illustrations are lively with bright, cheerful colors. Each bee has a unique look and personality; for example, Ansel has a goatee. However, the story is affected and overdone, and young listeners will not understand the contrived puns. An additional purchase for larger collections.-Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    HERE'S THE BUZZ !

    Buzz Bumble is top dog. Or, more appropriately top bee. All the bees in the garden are awed by the speed he can fly, the amount of nectar he can bring home, his humdinger of a bee dance, and other talents. To say that Buzz enjoys this attention is putting it mildly - he revels in it. Why, Ansel Antennae, a renowned photographer is coming to the garden, and Buzz's wings quiver at the thought of being photographed. But suddenly Buzz is no longer the A-List bee, his position usurped by the arrival of Baby Bee. All the others hovered around the new arrival exclaiming how cute and sweet she is. A sulking Buzz wonders, 'Why were they droning on and on about her?' He thought she should be sent right back to the Queen Bee. Then, to add insult to injury he was told to look after the little one. Well, little bees aren't aware of all the dangers in a garden. Baby Bee fell right into a Venus Fly Trap. Buzz was the only one who saw this. The question is what will he do, if anything? Young readers will enjoy the sunshine bright illustrations as well as discover that sibling rivalry isn't limited to humans.
