Book Synopsis



Buzzing with energy and humor, bestselling Caldecott Honor illustrator David Shannon presents a busy little bee who -- like most people -- won't slow down to enjoy the simple joys in life.

Lizzie is the busiest, buzziest bee in Hivetown! David Shannon's vivid artwork and Lizzie's endearing efforts to do it all will make children laugh aloud at her frantic antics as she juggles school, multiple sports, dance, violin, and art. With charm and determination, she longs to impress the Queen by winning a spelling contest, but she studies to the point of exhaustion. When she dozes off in the middle of the competition, the only solution is rest -- and her refreshing visit to the local Garden finally teaches Lizzie to stop and smell the flowers, which . . . is exactly what bees are supposed to do. Shannon's exuberant new book is funny and fresh, approaching the subject of over scheduled children (and adults) with breezy good humor and delivered with his signature fun and heart.



From the Back Cover



Bizzy Mizz Lizzie is the busiest buzziest little bee in all of Hivetown! When she's not at school or taking art lessons, violin, or ballet, she's playing Bee League baseball or selling cookies for the Junior Honey Scouts. She's amazing! But even the most



Review Quotes




Shannon's illustrations are impressive in their ability to portray a wide range of emotions, activity, and detail. The art is expressive and exuberant, bursting with yellows, pinks, and reds. Lizzie's busyness is mirrored in visually busy illustrations, and readers will enjoy discovering plenty of bee-related puns in the details. Peppered with alliterative bs and zs, the lighthearted text delivers a message that everyone can appreciate: even busy bees need to stop and smell the roses. -- The Horn BookThe bug-eyed characters in the illustrations are cleverly created with clothing that mimics the shape and texture of bumble bees and hair that gives each bee their own identity....This picture book has a timely message for a generation of families who may find themselves overscheduled. -- School Library JournalA powerful message in this time of overscheduling and de-emphasis of play. -- Kirkus ReviewsShannon humorously advocates slowing down to appreciate the small things in life in this bee-themed fable....Shannon's excited narration and bold bee caricatures befit a heroine who's always on the move, bringing a jittery energy to the pages. -- Publishers WeeklyPraise for Duck on a Tractor: * An energetic, laugh-out-loud tale that's a worthy companion to Duck's first big adventure. --School Library Journal, starred reviewZany humor once again radiates from both pictures and text: reading out loud is a real delight. Bright, textured colors heighten the madcap antics of each character. The finale wraps things up with a mischievous wink. Fans of Duck's previous outing will revel in this return to gentle anarchy. --Kirkus ReviewsPraise for Too Many Toys!: *A master at capturing the workings of a young mind, Shannon combines realistic dialogue with his boisterous illustrations to create another surefire hit. This book provides a pertinent and appealing read. -- School Library Journal, (starred review)Shannon's sardonic wit will strike a chord with parents and children alike. --Kirkus ReviewsPraise for A Bad Case of Stripes: *Imaginative, vibrant, and at times good and spooky. --Kirkus Reviews, (starred review)Shannon's over-the-top art is sensational, an ingenious combination of the concrete and the fantastic. --Booklist
