Higgenbloom and the Dancing Grandmas Shines a Light on Cool Grandparents and Silly Bees

HiggenbloomEvery kid deserves to be silly. And every grandma deserves to dance. No matter what anybody else thinks. Those are the two key themes in the new children’s picture ebook from award-winning author Kathy Lynn Harris and illustrator Katie MacGillivary.

You see, Higgenbloom the Honey Bee didn’t fit in with the other bees who lived on Grandma Rosemary’s farm. Instead of working from sunup to sundown like the others, Higgenbloom was known for doing silly somersaults, breaking out in little bee boogies, and pretending he was a jet pilot, zooming from flower to flower and making himself quite dizzy. But sadly, Higgenbloom always played alone. One morning, Higgenbloom wanders off (again), only to find himself in a heap of trouble — trapped inside a moving car and traveling away from the farm and everything he knows! In this delightful book for children age 3 to 6, readers join Higgenbloom on an adventure where he encounters some very cool Dancing Grandmas that turn the stereotype of no-fun older folks upside-down.

Packed with interactive questions for children and beautiful illustrations, Higgenbloom and the Dancing Grandmas is the perfect ebook for fun grandmothers who know how to “rock and roll,” grandchildren who love being silly, or anyone who has ever wanted to boogie down.

This is Harris’s third published children’s book. She is also the author of two Amazon bestselling adult novels, Blue Straggler and A Good Kind of Knowing. She also blogs at kathlynnharris.com. MacGillivary is a member of the New England Society of Botanical Artists and a graduate of the certificate program in Native Plants and Ecology at the Coastal Maine Botanic Gardens, as well the Denver Botanic Gardens Botanical Illustration Certificate Program. This is her first children’s book.
