About Hexagon

High Up in the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal, Apolla the Mountain Butterfly tells the tale of how global warming has wreaked havoc in the mountains, and flowers are dying. In order to save HEXAGON from collapse, honeybees need help. Tupelo, a naïve young bumblebee, is a “big bee,” even by bumblebee standards. She wanders away from home and learns how it feels to be bullied and ostracized when she stumbles upon HEXAGON. Seeking refuge, but rejected by the honeybees who run the hive, Tupelo puts her own pain aside and rallies the bumbles to help the honeys. She learns how compassion always overcomes fear if you lead with love.

Recommended for children aged 5 to 12 but created with the entire family in mind.
