BEE makes it to New Zealand!

Thanks to the Children's Bookshop in Wellington, NZ, BEE continues to travel the world!

The Daring Escape of Beatrice and Peabody (Beholding Bee in the US) is a staff favorite of Heidi Voorendt.

Here is her lovely review.

"A beautiful, touching story about an orphan girl who works in a travelling carnival where she is bullied and taunted daily because of a birthmark on her face. When a scruffy dog turns up Beatrice decides to run away with him. Joined by a piglet named Cordelia and with help from a mysterious old lady, they set of to find an new home. With a wonderful cast of characters and themes of lose, love, friendship and acceptance, it is perfect for fans of Eva Ibbotson and Katherine Ruundell.
