Description - Five Boys by Mick Jackson

Things have never been the same in the village since the evacuee arrived and the Five Boys mistook him for a Nazi spy. There have been a host of visitors: the Americans preparing for D-Day, a deserter hiding out in the woods. But it is the arrival of the Bee King who makes the biggest impression. He is a law unto himself, has his own strange rituals and the villagers fear he is beginning to exert the same charm over their boys as he does over his bees . . .
