The Bees of Notre-Dame
by Meghan P. Browne (Author), E. B. Goodale (Illustrator)

This is a beautiful story book about the bees of Notre-Dame.
Reading age ‏ : ‎ 4 – 8 years

This is one of those beautiful books you’ll enjoy even as an adult, pouring over the drawings, reading the words and stopping to pause at the page with the bees around a queen. The drawings are lovely, urban sketches of one of the world’s most famous buildings and their inhabitants.  The pictures of the fire have a Turner-esque feel to them and are very dramatic.
The inside covers have sketches of the overhead views before and after the fire.

Vive les abeilles!
