Waterstones Says

This strikingly illustrated story of a bee, a ladybird and a toe-tapping celebration of dance and difference makes for heartwarming and inclusive reading for little ones.

Baboo, the only pink bee in his hive, dances alone. Then he meets a green ladybird called Lee. By sharing his dancing skills with her, Baboo becomes her friend. But it doesn't stop there: the two insects' toe-tapping talent has caught the attention of all the creatures in the garden.

Finally they start to appreciate Baboo's differences and wish for their own. Baboo reassures them: we're all a bit different in our own special ways. The important thing is to be yourself.
