The Last Honey Bee by Wayne Gerard Trotman
Not having a child of my own, I have never before bought a children’s book. I made an exception this time and bought The Last Honey Bee. What a good buy! What delight it brought me!
The story is spellbinding and told in rhymes, and the illustrations are superb. Just like a child, I was transfixed to the plight of the beautiful honey bee. All alone and surrounded by danger, it bravely continues its journey to a new land where it finds peace and a welcoming community.
The narrative flows smoothly. The rhyming lines bring magic and beauty. While reading the story and feasting on the outstanding drawings, I wished I were five or six years old giggling in delight. But who wouldn’t giggle and laugh at lines like these:
“Look at me/I’m wild and free/ Look at me/ I’m Manderlee/ The last honey bee.”
I congratulate Wayne Trotman and his well-chosen illustrator Nhat Hao Nguen for producing a masterpiece in children’s literature.
