The Very Greedy Bee by Steve Smallman. All the bees work hard making honey and cleaning the hive, except the very greedy bee. He spends all his time gobbling up pollen and guzzling nectar, refusing to share with anyone. One day the very greedy bee finds a meadow full of flowers and decides not to tell anyone so he can keep it all for himself. The greedy bee whizzes from flower to flower, slurping and burping, growing fatter and fatter, until at last his tummy is full. After a nap the greedy bee tries to fly home, but is too heavy to fly, and falls to the ground! Alone and scared, two fireflies and some ants help to get him home safe. The greedy bee invites everyone to enjoy a midnight feast of yummy, runny honey. See this book listed in our catalog
