Nyuki is a brand-new honeybee — and she has a lot of questions. Like when does a bee go through metamorphosis? Why does a queen bee sometimes leave her hive? And where does all this honey come from, anyway?! But Nyuki’s biggest question is, “What is this inner voice I hear, and why does it tell me to go forth to adventure?
Follow Nyuki on a lifelong journey as she annoys her sisters, avoids predators, and learns to trust her inner voice as she masters the way of the hive! This full-color coming-of-age graphic novel by Jay Hosler is perfect for curious kids who are fans of the Science Comics series — and if you still have questions at the end, the back of the book uncovers even more mysteries about the lives of these incredible insects!
"Although it takes place over only a few seasons, the sweet story is rich with both information about honeybees and character development. Hives may have thousands of workers, but the art and the plot create three unique personalities that will have readers invested in learning more about this all-too-important insect — a feat made even more impressive by realistic illustrations that never anthropomorphize the characters and factual details that are far from honey-coated. Graphic novel fans, lovers of nonfiction, budding ecologists, and readers looking for their next great obsession will be buzzing around this title for years to come." — Kirkus Reviews
