Bessie Higgenbottom is nine (and three quarters) years old and the most dedicated member of any Honeybee troop in the whole world. Bessie wears her uniform every single day and she has more badges than any Bee ever! Every year when the Bees sell boxes of taffy, she breaks her own sales record. Aspiring to someday become a superhero called the Mighty Bee, Bessie has a can-do attitude taken to the extreme, a big heart and an even bigger personality. Neat as a pin and incredibly organized, some may say she's bossy. But Bessie just knows that she likes everything to be up to standard...Honeybee standard, that is...and she's happy to tell you all about it.
