"A handsome butterfly floated by, curious to see what's up and why. Little Miss Bee, what is your name? What are you doing, playing a game?"...And so begins this enchanting tale of love and friendship, set in the mystical red rocks of Sedona, Arizona. Bonnie Bee and Benny Butterfly's chance meeting blossoms into a lasting friendship. Despite their differences and the wrath of the Queen Bee, they eventually marry, "in love's harmony." Their precious union results in the birth of the magical Butterbees, Bizzy and Buzzy Butterbee twins. The artistic mastery of retired Disney artist and animator, David Michener, breathes life into this fable's wondrous characters. Butterbees inspire children to tap into their inner gifts and talents, and to accept themselves and others for who they are and teach positive bee attitudes such as bee happy, bee kind and bee you! They offer a timely and timeless message of tolerance, unity and respect for all living beings.
