Lyhyt elämäkerta
William Bee was born in London, but now lives in the English countryside.

As well as writing books, he races a vintage sports car, is an international skier, and when at home tends his lawns and meadow. Bee rarely leaves his tiny village, accept for international skiing and vintage racing, but his daily walks lead to friendly encounters with the local wild life. He knows the local weasels, grass snakes, moles and hedgehogs, as well as the family of deer that live in his garden.

Bee writes his books on his various typewriters – including a classic Royal Sabre and a pair of Smith Corona Super Gs. His work has been displayed in various museums including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and Mitsukoshi Museum of Art in Japan.

This is my 1.5-year-old daughter's favorite book. She loves the whole series. I have to say, I wasn't thrilled with them initially but after my 1,000th reading, I'm really starting to pick up on the nuances of Stanley's existence. He is an auto mechanic, a diner owner/operator, a construction worker, a farmer, and a postal worker. That is one industrious hamster. He ends every day exactly the same way, so maybe he's obsessive-compulsive? He's also very into hats.

Additionally, I've become more invested in the cast of supporting characters. Charlie is the most fascinating - we learn he's a slob and a heartthrob in [b:Stanley the Mailman|26396184|Stanley the Mailman|William Bee|https://d2arxad8u2l0g7.cloudfront.net/books/1444891739s/26396184.jpg|46398812] - but Myrtle, Hattie, Shamus and Little Woo also have their intriguing qualities. How has Hattie's employment at the diner affected her friendship with Stanley? Is Myrtle's car always breaking down because she's such a speed demon - or is it a cry for Stanley's attention? What happened to Little Woo's mother? Is Shamus a widower?

There's a new Stanley book coming out in 2017 (http://a.co/j3srnSc) where it's rumored Stanley is going into the retail business. Even if MJ has outgrown Stanley by that time I'll probably pick it up just to see how my favorite rodents are getting on. Cheers to William Bee!
