See Inside


Meet Belle, a Parisian girl who goes on holiday to the countryside and is eager to explore on her new bicycle. Soon, though, disaster strikes: Belle falls off her bike and is lost and alone. Now it’s time to meet a talking bee! Yes, a bee who speaks! The talking bee rescues Belle and they set off together…

Follow the wonderful adventure of Belle and the bee as they meet every kind of plant and animal proud to call the countryside their home. Just like Belle, you’ll be amazed to discover how nature works: you’ll never look at the natural world around you in the same way again.
