The Bee-Man of Orn

ISBN: 0763622397
Genre: children's picture book

This beautifully illustrated book tells a sweet tale of an old man who encounters a sorcerer. The Sorcerer tells him that he can magically help everyone become what they are meant to become. The bee-man replies that he is happy the way he is. The sorcerer convinces him to try his magic, and a wonderful adventure ensues.

I love the illustrations, and the lesson it tells about accepting yourself, and I also like the style in which it was written. A wiggly kid wouldn't sit through the whole thing, but a young one who loves the pictures and is willing to sit for 15 minutes would like this.

Recommended.
