How to Bee
Bren MacDibble

In this dystopian future set in Australia, there are no more bees in the whole wide world. Children are charged with hand pollination, trying to replace the bees as best they can, but 9-year-old Peony is still too young to take on the job. Nevertheless, she is convinced that she would make a fabulous bee if not the best bee the farm has ever seen!

Suitable for interdisciplinary teaching, primarily in the subjects Geography (Australia) and Biology (climate change).
