‘The Bee Hive’ by Simon Adepetun

Eleven-year-old Daniel Jeremiah Chambers has parents Philip and Susan who love work and shopping and who just don’t listen. Daniel is an only child … no, he’s lying … he has a sister, Alice, who has a dolly fixation; Dan is sure she is an alien.

So, Dan has a few problems, none insurmountable, until his friend, Benji, introduces him to the find of the century – a derelict bee hive which could become a den. Of course, such a simple thing is never so simple and when Dan finds a map well, all kinds of things just go horribly wrong.
