by Steve Smallman Illustrated by Jack Tickle

MINE! That's what the very greed bee says to anyone who asks him to share. While all the other bees work hard to clean the hive and make honey, they very greedy bee spends all of his time gobbling pollen and guzzling nectar. One day he finds a meadow full of flowers and decides not to tell anyone. He spends the entire day buzzing from flower to flower until…THUMP. The very greedy bee is so full that he cannot fly! It's getting dark and he doesn't know how to get home unless he flies. With the help of some new found friends the very greed bee is able to return to his hive and has learned that it's best to work with others and share what you have
