Provides information about the life cycle and environment of honeybees through the story of Nyuki, from the hive called Clan Apis, as she matures from a larva into an adult bee and takes on more responsibilities within her community.

"Although years of rock 'em, sock 'em adventures have branded comic books as lightweight entertainment for children, Jay Hosler has staged a valiant defense of the medium. In his hands, cartooning becomes exciting education. Clan Apis ingeniously reworks the plot conventions of the musty old action comic as Hosler sneaks a lot of lessons about bee anatomy, behaviour, and ecology into his brisk story." - Discover Magazine

Effectively conveys fascinating facts about bees by smuggling them into a mildly engaging narrative. Should inspire a lot more wonderment about these amazing social insects!
