The Queen Bee is an updated retelling of the fairy tale about seeking fortune, breaking a spell and discovering the identity of the real prince with the help of ants, ducks, and a regal Queen Bee, with role reversals and undercurrent themes of both the value of education and being kind to animals.

Find it at Books for Kids and Teens.

 


Excerpt

Later in their journey the siblings happened upon a bee's nest in a shrub next to the road.

"Those bees could be dangerous." said Gloria. "Let's get them."

"Maybe we could just walk around them," Geoff said.

"No, we must scare them away," said Gloria. She tugged on Geoff's arm.

Gloria and Geoff gathered brush to make a fire under the shrub.

"This will scare away the bees," said Gloria.

Gwen stood in front of her sister and brother. "Stop. Leave the bees alone. I won't let you harm them."



Professional Reviews

Everything a child could want
"The Queen Bee is a classic tale of old brought to life with…a twist of humanity thrown in…. This book has everything a child could want and more…. A great read and a lesson

-- Rita Hestand, Author


A delightful story
"...a delightful story with an excellent message…a nice twist to a fairy tale. The story teaches some basic and profound lessons. It blends classic fairy tale magic with modern ideas…while still allowing the girl most deserving of praise to marry her fairy tale prince. The book also has a nice reversal of roles, with the heroine saving the enchanted prince…Gwen receives her just reward not because she is the most beautiful girl in the land but because she is genuinely good, intelligent and respectful of her fellow creatures."

-- Anita Jo Stafford, Simply E-Books


Great book, a must for [your] collection!
This is such a cute story…. Herrick is also a powerful storyteller. I ended up reading this little book numerous times. It was just so much fun to read…. I also enjoyed the magic throughout the story, and so will children. Great book, a must for [your] collection!"

-- Danielle Naibert, Children's Book Site
