“When Dumbee was a very young Bee, the Queen-mother said, 'Why do you always go around buzzing? You don't have time to gather any honey, for you are always too busy buzzing.' 'Buzz, buzz, I like what I duz' replied Dumbee. 'That's a dumb answer,' said one of his brothers. ' You must be just a dumb Bee!' "

The third book of the Mesaland Series introduces Dumbee, a lazy but handsome bumblebee who is always in trouble for making poor choices. Written by Loyd Tireman, adapted by Evelyn Yrisarri and beautifully illustrated by Ralph Douglas.

First published between 1943 and 1949 and now available again, the seven books in the Mesaland Series introduce a new generation of young readers to the animals and plants of the great Southwest.
