Watercolor paintings accompany this retelling of the folktale about an elderly man who lives alone--with only a swarm of bees for company. One day the man meets a sorcerer who tells him a very important secret. The man then sets out on a quest to discover his true self--and what he finds surprises him more than he can believe. Each book comes packaged with a DVD entitled MAKING FAIRY TALES, in which illustrator P.J. Lynch gives a demonstration of his artistic process.
