It could just be one of those days when a little girl goes to her grandmother's house, waiting for her mother to come pick her up, but this day is the occasion of a special trip for the little girl. She is seized by a magical universe, playing to understand what is close and what is far, as much in space as in time. She starts following a flying bee, then pursues it unhesitatingly, to the point of becoming small enough to enter a beehive and discover first-hand the life and organisation of these precious insects, until her mother comes to pick her up.
A simple and poetic picture book that highlights the feelings of a little girl, a book that received the support of Greenpeace in Italy, for the attention brought to the world of bees, strongly threatened by pesticides, to the point that the environmental association is leading a special project devoted to their protection.
