'Bumble the Bee' by Yvon Douran


When is a bee not a bee? Can a bumble bee change himself into a bird or a ladybug? If a bumble bee had feathers like a bird could he still gather pollen all day or would the feathers get in his way? Bumble is about to discover the answers to these questions and learn some bee-wildering lessons along the way.

This picture book is for children ages 4 through 8.

Take a sneak peek inside:

While buzzing around inside of a flower, Bumble the bee was caught in a shower. 
Soaked by the rain, and blown by the gale, Poor little Bumble became tired and frail. 
Soon the rain stopped, just as quick as it had started. Bumble opened his wings to the sun, while it lasted.


Yvon Douran, children's book author is a true adventurer, and with good reason: Her infamous ancestor, Fletcher Christian, led the mutiny on the Bounty in 1789. Not surprisingly, then, in 1985 Ms. Douran made a bold decision to leave her idyllic life on a tiny South Pacific island and travel 13,000 miles to study photography at the famed Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California.
