Melita Honeybee: Time Travel Adventure in Ancient Egypt

Michelle Holthouse

Melita is a young bee who loves caring for her family, including her mother, Queen Melissa. She is a loving, kind, and caring bee who is as attracted to stories as she is to pollen and nectar. Ryan and JoAnn, her favourite humans, love to tell stories around the hive.


One day, a mysterious wind carries Melita to Ancient Egypt, where she meets Re, a god, who cries, and from his tears, bees are created. Re promises to take care of Melita and the bees.


Melita soon discovers she is not alone in Ancient Egypt, as she finds a friend from her time. Together, they explore the life and times, beauty, and mystery of Ancient Egypt.
