Bestselling and award-winning author-artist David Shannon's book is a funny and fresh look at the subject of over scheduled children (and adults) filled with breezy good humor while also delivering with his signature heart.
Lizzie is the busiest, buzziest bee in Hivetown. Shannon’s vivid artwork and Lizzie’s endearing efforts to "do it all" will make children laugh aloud at her frantic antics as she juggles school, multiple sports, dance, violin, and art. With charm and determination, she longs to impress the Queen by winning a spelling contest, but she studies to the point of exhaustion. When she dozes off in the middle of the competition, the only solution is rest and her refreshing visit to the local Garden finally teaches Lizzie to stop and smell the flowers “which is exactly what bees are supposed to do.”

The author will be signing older titles, also available at the bookstore, and he will have giclee prints and original artwork on display.

David Shannon is the internationally acclaimed creator of more than thirty picture books, including No, David!, a Caldecott Honor Book and his second New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year, and three more David picture books. Shannon's bestsellers include A Bad Case of Stripes, Duck on a Bike, and Too Many Toys!. He lives in California with his family.
