Overview Biene i New York

Max lives on the 20th floor in the building which includes the Waldorf Astoria where his dad is head chef. They have an enchanting garden on the roof with masses of fine plants and bee-hives.

The hotel manager is angry and dissatisfied with the menu and demands some magic; otherwise he will throw both Dad and Max out. Max doesn't want to leave his lovely paradise. Can he discover something magic with the help of the bees' honey?

Biene i New York is about loyalty, belonging and bees. The exciting and busy city is breathtakingly illustrated.

'This book is brim-full of summer joy, humming bees and golden honey. Altogether a thoroughly feel-good story, perfect for reading aloud in the warmth of summer.'

Reviews Biene i New York

Biene i New York er den perfekte høytlesningsboka i sommervarmen

"På jakt etter en skikkelig sommerbok for de yngste? «Biene i New York» er mitt beste tips for sesongen. Her bugner det av sommerfølelse, summende bier og gyllen honning. [...] Innbakt i fortellingen er mye interessant informasjon [...] uten at det blir belærende. Dette er en bok som gjør barn interessert i bier og blomster, i bokstavelig, ikke metaforisk betydning. [...] Det er mye liv i de fargerike og fargesterke bildene [...] Alt i alt en gjennomarbeidet feelgood-fortelling som egner seg godt til høytlesning i sommervarmen.
