The Japanese Version of Buzz Off Has Arrived

by Hannah Reed/Deb Baker

A while back I shared the news that Japanese translation rights had been sold for Buzz Off and Mind Your Own Beeswax. Well, my copies of Buzz Off (or should I say, The Unfortunate Incident to Bees) came in the mail last week, and I could hardly wait to show you!

Look at the size difference. The English version is traditional paperback size.

And the book opens just the opposite of ours. 

Can anyone read this?

Just had to share!!:)

Wow, that looks so awesome! Do you always get a copy of the foreign language print books?
An no, I cannot read Japanese.

Deb said...

This is my first time in a foreign language, but I'm guessing, yes, I'd always get a few.

That is so wonderful! Congratulation! The cover is so cute, as is the title translation.

Congrats Deb.

Look at the right page. There is a list of charactors.

Usually, Japanese books have this kind of list so you can come back to here if you think "Who is this?" while you read.

I hope paperbacks have the list, too...

Deb said...

That's a list of characters? Cool!
