OK, this is a Victorian children's book about the life cycle of a bee - with more melodrama than the average hive! Buz stings a would-be murderer as he is breaking into the house of a good and deserving old couple. Buz dies, but hey, she was only going to live about 21 days anyway, and she died a she-ro. The cover, printed in black and gold, is of a honeycomb and bees - gorgeous!
