The Adventures of Maya the Bee

Waldemar BONSELS (1880 - 1952), translated by Adele Szold SELTZER (1876 - 1940) and Arthur GUITERMAN (1871 - 1943)

The Adventures of Maya the Bee is an exciting tale for children of all ages. Themes of growth and development of courage and wisdom are found, as well as the extreme joy and satisfaction that Maya experiences in the beauty of creation and all creatures. Her ultimate and innate loyalty to her Nation of Bees is acted out in the final heroic scenes. This story gives us the delightful sense of having seen a small segment of the world through a Bee's eyes. (Summary by Brenda Price)
