selected extracts from 'The Inquisitive Bee, and Other Tales', by W. and F. G. Cash

'How I wished I had not been a little bee. I would have been contented to have been a little man then, to have protected her; but what am I talking about, an inconstant man is no uncommon thing, but an inconstant bee a novelty.' - 7.6

'And away they went in the carriage, [...] to the great surprise of the by-standers, who never saw such an extraordinary thing since King Arthur ruled the days. Why they should feel so much surprised I cannot tell. What would this country do without wigs?' - 8.2

'I endeavoured to remonstrate with her, but she was inexorable.' - 9.1
