Why do beekeepers use smoke machines when collecting honey? Can a bee really sting only once? Why do bees dance"? In concise, detailed text and abundant illustrations that range from the humorous to the scientific, Charles Micucci offers a wide-ranging and spirited introduction to the life cycle, social organization, and history of one of the world's most useful insects. He includes information on how bees make honey, what a beekeeper does, and products that contain beeswax - everything fromlipstick to waxes for buffing surfboards. Micucci's rare gift for making science enjoyable and accessible is again revealed in this remarkably witty, rich salute to the honeybee."
Charles Micucci's other books with Houghton Mifflin include The Life and Times of the Honeybee and The Life and Times of the Peanut. He lives in New York City.

Information about honeybees has never been more interesting . . .Right on target for young readers." School Library Journal, Starred"A solid, fascinating treasure trove of bee stuff, as enriching to the mind as it is pleasing to the eye.
