A big, beautifully illustrated book on one of the most amazing animals on earth: the humble bee.

  1. How do bees communicate?
  2. How long have they been around?
  3. What does a beekeeper actually do?
  4. Who survived being stung by 2,443 bees?
This encyclopaedic book answers all these questions and many more, imparting masses of information with a light, humorous touch, and in scores of vibrant illustrations. Piotr Socha tracks the history of bees from the age of the dinosaurs to their current plight, examining along the way the role bees have played in history and in the rest of the natural world.
