From the #1 New York Times-bestselling author and illustrator behind The Wonky Donkey comes Willbee the Bumblebee, a catchy rhyme with endearing illustrations that will leave you buzzing!

Willbee the bumblebee is so embarrassed when he realizes that his black-and-yellow jacket has caught on a rose thorn and completely unraveled, showing his bare bum! With help from Monica the butterfly and Steve the spider, Willbee recovers his jacket and is back to buzzing around the garden in no time.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Wonky Donkey"The 2009 children's book-about a one-eyed, caffeine-deprived, flatulent, yet ultimately charming donkey-by Kiwi author Craig Smith found new life after a video of a Scottish woman reading it to her grandson went viral...75,000 copies in print in the U.S. before the video premiered. A few months later, that number is now one million. Ten consecutive weeks in which The Wonky Donkey has ranked in the top 10 of Amazon's 'Most Sold' list for books." - Entertainment Weekly
