Summary

A honeybee and a bumblebee have a chat. A rose offers a worm a bit of its compost. A mouse assures a root of its importance. These fun rhyming poems for two voices are blooming, bursting, and buzzing with personality. Eugene Yelchin's stunning illustrations beautifully accent Carole Gerber's unusual conversations. Together, they offer a close-up view of the plant and insect worlds, with an amazing amount of information about them. All around us, under our feet, thousands of interactions and transformations are taking place. This book gives the reader a chance to listen in.
