Welcome to Day One of the Bee-Wigged Blog Tour!
Since I’m going first, I’ve decided to do a little synopsis of this smashing picture book. That’ll also give me a chance to show some of my favorite pictures from the book:
by Cece Bell (my lovely wife & co-conspirator)
Jerry Bee just wants to be nice. But he’s such a big bee that he scares everybody.
But then he finds a wig…
Now he can be nice to people without scaring them, plus since he looks like a boy he gets to go to school. He’s so nice that everybody loves him…
But then … a gust of wind exposes him for what he is … a giant stinging insect!
Oh, Jerry! Everyone runs! I don’t want to spoil it! There’s a shocking twist! But a good one! In the end, the power of being nice prevails!
