About the Book

Friendly Bee wants to be friends with every bug he meets, whether they like it or not.

Meet Friendly Bee: he's a bee who puts himself out there, a bee who sees the best in other beings. Sometimes, Friendly Bee's cheerful attitude gets him into trouble - like almost being squashed by an excessively large shoe; or becoming a delicious meal for the mildly homicidal Enormous Hairy Spider. Luckily, Friendly Bee's reluctant best friend Angry Wasp is there to save this buzzing buffoon from certain doom - if he really has to.
