Charlotte Voake’s bio


author/illustrator: Charlotte Voake

On a warm spring day, a curious boy watches the bees go back and forth from their hive. To his surprise, he hears tiny voices—the honeybees have a magic bee suit just for him! The next minute, the boy is the same size as Bella, Beatrice, and the rest of the sociable bees, ready to spend the day learning all about them. And when the day is over, the boy has an idea of his own about how to make his new friends’ lives even sweeter. Playful illustrations bring to life this buzzy adventure from beloved author-illustrator Charlotte Voake.

A boy wonders what honeybees do all day—and they offer to show him! Charlotte Voake delivers a delightful story filled with whimsy and wonder.
