KIRKUS REVIEW

Teale has made this fascinating subject -- the bees -- his own, so that even those who know their Fabre and their Maeterlinck will find something fresh and new in the way Teale has shared his own findings and his own experiences. He breaks some legends -- and reenforces others; he liberally colors his sober account of the bees with anecdotes. And he illustrates his text with seventy fine photographs, showing at close range the wonders of bee life. Good background material for professional.
