The story of what’s happening to the world’s bee populations is one that will seriously impact every living person on Earth. Sometimes, though, the best way to tell one story is with another story, and that’s one of the things this book, Pickle Panda Finds Love in the Time of Robot Bees, happens to be about. Here’s a quick synopsis:
Pickle the panda is one of the first of his kind: an intelligent animal capable of thinking, feeling, and communicating like the humans who raised him. Feeling like an alien in his own family, Pickle finds unexpected friends in Ramses, an ape that manages to pass as a human, and Meghan Watson, a studious mathematician working on tiny robot bees that could replace the world’s dwindling bee population. The only problem is that the bees aren’t just dying – they’re evolving! Like Pickle, the bees have developed an almost human intelligence, and they’re convinced that the humans’ excessive use of pesticides means war.
