A collection of nine enchanting short stories filled with curious beasts and unexpected endings. There once was a bee-man, he had no other friends than the honey bees. One day he meets a junior sorcerer who tells him that he has been placed under a curse. And so the bee-man sets out to find out what or who he was before the spell was cast upon him. This is a fairly typical morality tale about being true to yourself, with a slight twist in that the main character proves he was himself all along.
