Book Description:
A poor old Bee man must leave his beloved hives to search for his true identity in this wry, classic tale, transformed with splendid paintings by the incomparable P.J. Lynch

'But what have I been transformed from?'
'That is more than I know,' said the Junior Sorcerer.
'But one thing is certain you ought to be changed back.'

When a young sorcerer appears at the Bee man s hut and tells him he may have been magically transformed from some other creature, the old man packs up his honeycombs and sets off to find out just what his true nature might be. Maybe he once was the arrogant master of a fair domain? Or one of the dreadful monsters beneath the black mountain? On his journey, the simple but honest old man meets up with some memorable characters: a Languid Youth in search of invigoration; a lively, boot colored Very Imp; and a fearsome dragon about to devour a baby, a baby toward whom the Bee man feels strangely drawn.

Brought to new life with enchanting illustrations by award winning artist P. J. Lynch, this comic American folktale concludes with a final, satisfying twist that says much about fate, identity, and the captivating power of bees.
