Dumbee Book


DUMBEE Buzz, buzz, I like what I duz, sings Dumbee, the handsome bumblebee who buzzes happily around the mesa all day. Dumbee gets into more trouble than all the rest of his family put together, but he always buzz-z-z-z-es for help. Caught in sticky sap, he buzzes as loudly as only Dumbee can, and his brother flies to the rescue. But when Dumbee finds some mysterious blue honey, he proves that he is smarter than everyone else thinks.

First published between 1943 and 1949 and now available again from the University of New Mexico Press, the seven books in the Mesaland Series, several which are available at Luna & Luz, introduce a new generation of readers to the animals and plants of the great Southwest.
