The after-school science club is just starting, and Beatrice Honey Flinn, who is called Bumble B, and her best friends are joining, but when Mr. Dan separates the students into teams, Bumble B finds herself paired off with two children she does not know, Jasmine and Otto, instead of her friends–and their assignment is to make a list of all the animals, insects, plants, and rocks they find in the playground.
Marsha Qualey is the author of many books for readers young and old.

Like Bumble B., she has very good friends who make life fun. Marsha has four grown-up children and two grandchildren. She lives with her husband in Wisconsin.
