'One spirited little bee, Bertha, yearns for adventure in the big world beyond the hollow tree in which she lives. in a sudden burst of wild weather, a falling branch smashes the hive and so the Queen orders Bertha to scout out the surrounding countryside, to find a new home for the bees. Bravely, Bertha flies out into the gathering storm, over fleeing children, panicking animals and swirling trees into the relative sanctuary of a nearby forest where she meets a huge bear. Despite her fear, Bertha plucks up the courage to ask for help.' (Introduction)
