From start to finish, we follow the life of a spiteful, witty, and hilarious honey bee named Nyuki. From larva to death, this is her story. Growing up, she loved to annoy her sisters. But when she finally went through metamorphosis and got her wings, she decided to wander off. She almost got killed two times, but met a friend who led her home. Because of the danger outside the hive, Nyuki was afraid to go out again. Will Nyuki finally brave up? If she does, will she survive?

Hosler makes comic books educational. You can learn a lot about bees and other bugs by reading the graphic novel, Clan Apis. I sure did. For instance, did you know that it takes 13 days to go through full metamorphosis from larva to honey bee? That and countless more facts are to be learned in this educational funny. Donít believe me? Just read it for yourself!

Although not as good as Hoslerís The Sandwalk Adventures, Clan Apis is a great book. I give it 4 stars.
