"Buzz, buzz, I like what I duz," sings Dumbee, the handsome bumblebee who buzzes happily around the mesa all day. Dumbee gets into more trouble than all the rest of his family put together, but he always buzz-z-z-z-es for help. Caught in sticky sap, he buzzes as loudly as only Dumbee can, and his brother flies to the rescue. But when Dumbee finds some mysterious blue honey, he proves that he is smarter than everyone else thinks.

First published between 1943 and 1949 and now available again, the seven books in the Mesaland Series introduce a new generation of readers to the animals and plants of the great Southwest.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"All of the characters exude their own charm, their own cuteness, even their own cunning. . . . Those qualities will entice young readers to follow the characters in their encounters with wildlife and humans."--Albuquerque Journal


"Like all classic children's literature, the Mesaland Series retains its timeless appeal."--New Mexico Magazine


"With its eye-catching artwork, stories focused on Southwestern animals and mid-century charm, these tales of woodpeckers, jackrabbits, coyotes and other creatures of the desert are sure to make a handsome addition to any child's, or adult collector's, bookshelf."--Weekly Alibi


"[Douglass's] timeless illustrations for the Mesaland Series mix a pulpy comic-book flair he developed as a cartoonist with an attention to line detail and facial and body expressions that he must have developed as an oil painter."--Pasatiempo
