Bea Bee is the hardest working, resourceful and happiest bee living in a hive located in a beautiful meadow. One day she notices a new sign on the gate and goes back to the hive to get wise old bee to come to the gate with her and read the notice as she doesn’t understand all the words. The news is bad; the sign is for a planning application to build houses all over the meadow.
Back at the hive, wise old bee suggests that only if a rare or endangered species is found in the meadow is there a chance that the meadow can be saved. Bea comes up with a plan! There are some red flowers down near the stream with some fairly sticky pollen on them and she thinks that if she disguises herself as a red bee people will believe that there is a new species of bee. At least it will give the bees time to find out if there is a rare or endangered species in the meadow.
Will Bea and her friends from the meadow find a way to save it?
