"Few will be able to resist beekeeper Kearney's master class in beekeeping, a delightful mixture of how-to tips, popular science trivia, and interactive challenges... [A] spellbinding study of one of the world's most important insects, and one with appeal for kids as well as adults." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

With fresh prose and charming stories from the field, Kearney leads you through the intricacies of hive life and royal behavior. But more than that, the book is just plain fun. I couldn't rest until I spotted every wily monarch!" -- Rusty Burlew, HoneyBeeSuite.com
