Join twins Vivian and Fil, along with best friend Tia, on their first day of summer break in the town of Tillsonbug. What happens when they discover runaway bees? See how the threesome get into mischief and learn a few sticky lessons along the way. This short story is full of humour, adventure, and original hand-illustrated water colour art.

With bees so precariously surviving at the moment, The
Swarm that Swarmed encourages and enthuses children to
be environmentally aware and responsible.
- Linda's Book Bag Blog

It is one of those tales that will make you reminisce about
your own youth of discovery as you read it to your kids. It
really is an adorable story with sweet illustrations. It is a
story that will make you smile.

About the Author

Tillsonbugger Adventures, a series of children's books geared primarily for seven to ten year-old readers, originated with author Fernanda Lazzaro's experience as a backyard beekeeer. The first book in the series, "The Swarm that Swarmed", is based on an incident when Fernanda's neighbour became frightened as her bees swarmed their tree. Fernanda's distress at her neighbour's reaction -- burning down the branch that held the bees, prompted her to write a children's book to communicate the importance of bees.
