Bees, an Instant Book by Betsy Miller

He was not so afraid of bees that he couldn’t leave the house. It was more like if he saw a bee he would avoid it, you know, walk the other way. He knew all the places where bees liked to go on the way to school—the bottle brush plant, which he called the bee tree was worst of all. He always made sure to cross the street to the opposite side to avoid the bee tree.

Instant books are limited edition miniature books with complete stories inside. They fit in the palm of your hand, but are sturdy enough to read and share.

Keiko O’Leary, our Instant Book designer, created this book layout. She selected the typography and paper, created the cover art, and hand-folded each book.

Bees was released at the June 3rd Play On Words event at Café Stritch, where “Bees” was performed and Instant Books were available for purchase.
