Regarding the Bees
The seventh graders at Geyser Creek Middle School are beeyond stressed. They're preparing for a spelling bee and a horrible standardized test called the BEE (Basic Education Evaluation). Plus, this year the hunt for their honeys has become all-important. It's a good thing they have Honey, a bee that spells (yes, really!), as their class pet--and one fabulous teacher named Florence Waters. Sweet! The fifth book in the Regarding the . . . series takes the sting out of spelling bees, standardized tests, and even dating. Using letters, newspapers, and whatever else strikes their fancy, the Klise sisters have again created a book that spells J-U-S-T P-L-A-I-N F-U-N.
