Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A fascinating book.” --Booklist

Without honey bees, the world would be a different place. There would be no honey, no beeswax for candles, and, worst of all, barely a fruit, nut, or vegetable to eat. So imagine the beekeeper Dave Hackenburgs horror when he discovered twenty million of his charges had vanished. In The Hive Detectives, Loree Griffin Burns profiles bee wranglers and bee scientists who have been working to understand colony collapse disorder, or CCD. In this dramatic and enlightening story, readers explore the lives of the fuzzy, buzzy insects and learn what might happen to us if they were gone.

Synopsis:

THE HIVE DETECTIVES will be a science book for middle-grade readers in the Scientists in the Field series. Pulled straight from todays headlines: the disappearance of Americas honey bees.
