This marvelous book is chock-full of happy drawings of bees, easy to understand information and descriptions of bees, and is just generally really excited about bees.
But don’t buy it for your kids unless you want to encourage them to cuss like sailors.
But really, why shouldn’t adults get to have a fun book that’s a delight to the eyes, educational, and totally pottymouthed? That’s right! There’s no reason not to treat yourself to this celebration of bees! OMFG indeed!
My favorite chapter? “Great Paintings, if They Had Put Bees in Them”. The author gleefully tears into the pretentiousness of a handful of classic paintings… and yes, adds bees to make the artwork really pop. What the actual #%$*!
My thanks to author Matt Kracht, Chronicle Books, and NetGalley for allowing me to read a digital advance review copy of this book. This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.
