Henry can’t wait until he can have a bee-suit of his own so he can help his Aunt Lilla with the sister bees.

As Henry observes his Aunt Lilla work with the beehives on their Lowcountry farm, he becomes fascinated with her bee suit and her ability to communicate with the bees. When he learns that the bees are getting ready to look for a new place to live, he tries to find a way to communicate with the sister bees to convince them to stay.
