Horn Book Guide Reviews

Benedict the bear's routine is upset when the bees in his backyard, tired of his extreme honey habit, go on strike. The story, as Benedict comes to understand the need for give-and-take, is infused with humor, and the textured illustrations reflect the cozy quality of Benedict's world--even when it's full of bees carrying picket signs.
