Description


Kee, a smart and feisty honeybee, is mysteriously sabotaged by unseen forces. Disgraced, she flees the hive and bumps into an unlikely band of misfits including a skunk who can't stink, a mouse-intolerant snake, and a small but cheeky sidekick...who may have some attention deficit issues. Join Kee, Kyle, Noodles, and Pinky on their journey out of the woods and into the treacherous world of Baldi, Rumbler, and the rumored Dare protocol. Will they find "Lucky," an elusive character with legendary--if not magical--powers of healing? The colony depends on it.

This fun and funny tale about how to deal with adversity and overcoming fears of being odd, is ultimately a lesson in courage and tolerance, where we learn the power of pushing boundaries and discovering the hidden potential in all of us...regardless of how different we each may look.

Inspired by brave kids everywhere, Yudu Studios will donate all proceeds from this book to the following children's charities--Dreamflight (dreamflight.org), Muscular Dystrophy Association (mda.org), SNAP (snapkids.org), and Solving Kids' Cancer (skc.org).

About the Author


Jimothy Newton, a California native, but shaped by his years in Florida, Texas, Australia and Greece, came to children's fiction via a somewhat unusual path--a Summa Cum Laude honors degree in Electrical Engineering, followed by fifteen years of mind-numbing software development. Science has always been one of his favorite subjects which is why he spends a lot of time researching and including the science behind his stories and characters. When not writing, he can be found running music outreach programs he created for elementary schools and Boys & Girls Clubs in the Bay Area.

Tricia Seibold spent countless hours of her childhood perched in her favorite tree, drawing and dreaming up ways to make art her job. Her favorite art teacher saw potential and helped her figure out how to make it happen (and convince her parents it was actually a good idea). After earning her BFA, Tricia began her career designing toy and candy packaging before moving on to publishing, where she served as the art director at Communication Arts magazine for thirteen years. She has since enjoyed a successful freelance design career, where she occasionally gets to exercise her illustration muscles for client work. She is grateful every single day that people actually PAY her to do what she loves.
