ÖZKIRIM, A. ISBN: 978-0-86098-272-2 Softback 148 pp, IBRA, 2011. This fabulous book of 148 pages brings together the reality of life in the hive with the magic that the bees create as they go about their daily business. Beautifully illustrated the book is divided into nine stories, all based upon the colourful bee characters in their hive called ‘The honey bee castle’. We learn how the bees go about their daily lives, share pollen with the flowers and protect their castle and honey from the bears. There is also a moral tale that runs through the book which encourages us to appreciate the need to work together, and to share and understand the world around us.
