But how long will his disguise last?

And when the hive is endangered, can he finally discover his true destiny and become. . . The Bumblebear?

MEDIA REVIEWS

The Bumblebear from rising star Nadia Shireen is an absolute joy. Norman is a bear who wants to be a bee in order to have easier access to honey so, obviously, he makes himself a bee costume and enrols in Bee School. The little bees grow to love their unusually large bee friend – until clever Amelia bee discovers the truth. Luckily, Norman can save the day. With its bold illustrations and witty humour, this is a book that adults will relish reading aloud time and time again. - The Guardian

Norman the bear loves honey so much that he disguises himself as a bee. A rip-roaring, irresistible caper. - Metro

a hilarious tale of a honey-loving bear who disguises himself as a bee to get easier access to the sweet sticky stuff. - The Guardian

Nadia Shireen has penned a delightful, fast paced narrative with a wonderful character - The Bumblebear is a fabulous picture book! - My Book Corner

Norman is a bear that loves honey. A lot. But with the pesky bees always hovering round the stash, he needs a cunning plan. Dressed in disguise, Norman sneaks into Bee School – but will his cover-up be rumbled? And will Norman finally learn to be happy in his own fur? Funny and poignant, Bumblebear has a sweet message about acceptance at its heart. You’ll be reading it on repeat this summer holiday. - smallishmagazine.com
