Product Details


Product Description

From Amazon

Whether she's sipping nectar from beautiful flowers, avoiding hungry birds and fish, dancing with a butterfly, or bravely protecting her entire hive from a big bear with an even bigger appetite, this honeybee is always on the move. Eric Carle's updated classic features truly inspired feats of paper engineering, including a galloping bear and a spectacular butterfly that looks as if it will take off at any moment. There's not a gratuitous pop-up, flap, or movable piece of art in the book; readers will gasp with delight at every page, with every reading. The charming story is still a showcase for Carle's distinctive collages, in delectable golds, earthy greens, shimmering blues, and warm browns. This version is smaller than the original, and the text has been revised slightly, with younger readers in mind. A clever new interactive cover allows children to make the villain bear's eyes cross as the angry looking bee stings his nose.

Carle's bold, appealing style is known and loved by happy readers everywhere, who return again and again to The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Very Quiet Cricket, The Grouchy Ladybug, and his many other very popular titles.

From Publishers Weekly

Originally published in 1981, The Honeybee and the Robber by Eric Carle now invites young hands to play a part in the proceedings. From the get-go, children place a finger in the die-cut hole on the cover, slide it back and forth and make the big brown bear go cross-eyed as he gets stung by the bee. By pulling the tabs inside, readers can watch the honeybee escape from a hungry bird and then play with a pop-up butterfly.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE KING OF COLORFUL COLLAGE DOES IT AGAIN! July 20 2001
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Eric Carle, the king of colorful collage, has been delighting young readers for sometime now. This sturdy board book reissue of his 1981 classic is simply another jewel in his crown.
Bug-eyed, red nosed and eager, a honeybee exhorts her neighbors to go out and gather nectar. Pull a tab, and you'll see her fly. Another tab opens flower petals so the bees can sip nectar.
She's a swift honeybee, this one, as her tab-told story unfolds - she escapes a bird, a fish, and a frog to play with a vibrant winged pop-up butterfly.
But once she returns to her hive she hears a frightening noise. She thinks it must be a robber. What kind of a robber would try to steal their honey? What can the bees do to defend themselves. Pull some more tabs, and you'll see.!
Easy for young hands, a delight for young eyes, and a smile for the young at heart.

My children and I always anxiously await any new addition to our Eric Carle library. It's hard to believe that our next book will meet our high expectations, but they always do. The honeybee and the Robber was a new angle to his interactive collection which we thoroughly enjoyed. My children had plenty of opportunity to share the moving pictures and read the book over and over.The beauty of this book is that the children enjoy "reading" it to themselves using the moving parts to stir their imagination

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and well crafted pop-up book. Dec 23 2013
By Oggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
We have several pop-up books, the Honey bee and the robber is one of the Better pop-up books we bought for our child.

The storyline is better than some of the typical Eric Carle's Stories ... and yes I understand this is a children's book, but I feel a lot of his stories are in the same format as the very hungry caterpillar.

The illustrations and print quality are excellent. Most of the animation is accomplished by pulling on tabs... up, down, left or right. When you pull on the tabs the movement is very smooth and effortless. Our 14 month old (at the time) learned to pull on the tabs and really enjoyed making things move about. If the tabs would have been harder to move like in some of our other pop-up books, I don't think he would have been able to do learn how to do it.

Our son over time he has removed some of the pop-ups, one leg at a time, even thought we were there watching him .... man he is fast!. We'll definitely buy this book again once he's a little older, it's a beautiful book and enjoyable story.

P.S. The front cover has a slide button that moves the bee up and down the face of the bear. This is all protected by a clear thick plastic so it doesn't get damaged or dirty. This is a really nice detail to a really great book.

This is a wonderful book with lots of moving parts. Though my girls can be relatively aggressive with pop up books this is a sturdy book that I'll let them read at the table while I make dinner.
