[A] spellbinding study of one of the world's most important insects, and one with appeal for kids as well as adults." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Entertaining and educational. A great read for bee lovers and new-bees alike!" -- Melissa Hayes, MinuteEarth "What a trip! Delightfully written and technically accurate, Queenspotting peeks into the queen's domain. With fresh prose and charming stories from the field, Kearney leads you through the intricacies of hive life and royal behavior. But more than that, the book is just plain fun. I couldn't rest until I spotted every wily monarch!" -- Rusty Burlew, HoneyBeeSuite.com "Hilary Kearney writes lyrically, specifically, and succinctly, in a way that communicates her fascination and wonder while being factually accurate. Anyone interested in bees will enjoy this book." -- Michael Bush, author of The Practical Beekeeper
