Fas­ci­nated with the bees buzzing about Aunt Lilla’s hive boxes, Henry raptly fol­lows her around as she checks the frames and honey, speak­ing softly from un­der her gi­ant net­ted hat. Stun­ning land­scapes of South Carolina’s Low­coun­try marsh­lands and ex­pres­sive por­trai­ture il­lus­trate the story as Henry, im­pa­tient for his turn to help out with the bees’ care and main­te­nance, imag­ines him­self an in­te­gral part of the hive—per­haps even a king to as­sist the queen and her work­ers.
