Prejudice & Racism / Humorous Stories

One fine day, the bees called for a grand assembly in the beehive. The purpose of the meeting? To discuss why it was that they were always all squashed together in cramped working conditions. After many complex computations, equations and calculations, they realized that there was one bee too many in their beehive! The bees panicked: Who was it? How would they identify her? And once they did, what would they do with her? Through entertaining illustrations and humor, this delightful story explores such serious topics as prejudice and tolerance.

Andrés Pi Andreu was born in Havana, Cuba, in 1969; he is a writer, journalist, screenwriter and editor. His first children's book, El libro de Claro Carlitos (2001) was awarded the National Prize for Children's Literature in Cuba and was included in IBBY's Honor List. Since then, the author has continued publishing books and receiving awards, the Apel les Mestres, among them. He lives in Miami, Florida.

Kim Amate was born in Terrassa (Barcelona, Spain) in 1974. He studied illustration, graphic design and painting at Llotja and Massana in Barcelona. He worked in advertising and graphic arts until 2009, when he made his move in the publishing world. That same year he was awarded the prestigious Apel les Mestres for La ventana infinita, the first children's project he worked on with Andrés Pi Andreu.
