Day 77. I don't know how many people remember Maya the bee (the animated series is what I saw as a kid) but I recall being quite moved by it, and I immediately thought of it when I spotted Willibee the Bumblebee at the library. Willibee is about a bee who ends up bare-bummed when his jumper unravels, and is helped out by some other friendly insects (though the spider did still give me the creeps, I have to be honest). The story is nice. Some of the rhymes are a little bit laboured, but you get that. In contrast to Maya, I note another story with a male main character. I'm going to have some thoughts about this when we finish the series.
Master A's verdict: Listened to the story, but didn't really want to look at the pictures.
