Using powerful visual rhyming, this colourful portrait of a sober-minded ten-year-old girl leaps back and forth between her devoted battle for the survival of the bee to her fight with her own disease.
When the level-headed Pien heard that half of the global bee popu­la­tion is dead, she was astounded. She decided to do some­thing about it. With her friend Bouwe, she now guards the bee popu­la­tions in the back­yard, like the doctors guard her health — a while ago she was diag­nosed with bone cancer. Using powerful visual rhyming, this subtle story leaps back and forth from the ten-year-old girl enjoying life and her bees to her hospital treat­ment. She dreams of going to the nectar-rich rape fields with her bees. Will she succeed?
