The illustrations were cute (although the printing quality was a little questionable/fuzzy), but the story was not really compelling. I realize that I am not in the target age group for this book, but even as a young child I don't think that the story would have been satisfying to me. (view spoiler)[While other characters are mentioned in passing, the only character who we see into the mind of at all is the bee, which makes it kind of hard to accept that he is a bully - sure, being stung by a be...more

Angela Muse's "The Bee Bully" is actually a cute & rather short tale about a bee who was pretty much mean to just about everyone & everything around him. After being captured by a little boy & realizing it isn't nice to be captured, the bee turns around & is nice to everyone. A very quick & easy read for children & even adults to remind us of the golden rule of "do unto other as you would have others do unto you". A very enjoyable book indeed.
This was a cute book. My children enjoyed it very much. It was a simple story of how the bee was mean to everyone. He was going to sting a little boy, but ended up getting trapped by the same boy and at that point he had time to reflect on the bad things that he did to others. The boy eventually let him out and the little bee ended up changing his ways.
I received this book in a giveaway on goodreads. I really enjoyed this children's book. My 10 year old daughter read it and liked it. She felt it was relevant for her age group and was able to understand the message the book is putting out. She also said she wants to read other books by the author.

Great child's starter book teaching it is better to be kind.
I was born in California to a military family. This meant that I was the "new kid" in school every couple of years. It was hard always trying to make new friends, but I discovered I had a knack for writing. I began writing poetry in high school and really enjoyed expressing myself by using pen and paper. After becoming a Mom in 2003, I continued my storytelling to my own children. In 2009 I wrote...moreMore about Angela Muse...
