Description

HarperCollins continues with its commitment to reissue Maurice Sendak's most beloved works in hardcover by making available again this 1964 reprinting of an original fairytale by Frank R. Stockton, as illustrated by the incomparable Maurice Sendak. In the ancient country of Orn there lived an old man who was called the Bee-man, because his whole time was spent in the company of bees. One day a Junior Sorcerer stopped at the hut of the Bee-man. The Junior Sorcerer told the Bee-man that he has been transformed. "If you will find out what you have been transformed from, I will see that you are made all right again," said the Sorcerer. Could it have been a giant, or a powerful prince, or some gorgeous being whom the magicians or the fairies wish to punish? The Bee-man sets out to discover his original form.
