Explorer bees Gabriela and Isabela generally do typical chores—until one day, the Queen Bee sends for them! The queen has a special job for Gabriela and Isabela, and the future of the bee colony depends on them. With enemies in their path and unpredictable obstacles along the way, they fearlessly attempt to fulfill the queen’s request and face an even greater challenge. Do they stop to save someone who almost undermined their success and the entire future of their colony?
