Gisbert, Montse (text/illus.)
El bebé més dolç del món (The sweetest baby of the world)
Valencia : Tandem Ed., [1999]. – [36pp]
ISBN 84-8131-237-x
(Span. ed.: El bebé más dulce del mundo)
Told from the perspective of a young bee, this book describes the life in a bee-colony: raising, »construction«, nectar collection, production of honey etc. A short appendix provides further information. Despite these informations, this book is first and foremost an imaginative picture book, heedlessly anthropomorphising the world of the bees. This is most evident in the brightly coloured, cheerful and wild illustrations. They show, for example, a bee swinging a broom or transporting construction material on a truck. This book is an unusual cross-over between the picture story- and reference book. (4+)
