James and the Bees is a magazine story illustrated using photographs from the television series.

Plot

One day, James meets Trevor, who is enjoying his work at the Vicarage Orchard. James inquires about a buzzing noise and Trevor explains that it's the bees that the Vicar keeps. He is to take them to the station so they can make honey for the Vicar's friends. Just then, BoCo arrives and warns James not to let the bees sting him, but James just ignores BoCo. Soon, James arrives at the station where a bee hive was to be placed on a train, but the hive falls and breaks open. The bees head towards James and one stings him on the nose! James tries to get rid of the bees by spinning on the turntable and having a wash, but the stubborn bees still cling onto his boiler. Soon, they give up and go back to find a new hive. The bees are soon safely in their new home and the Vicar thanks James.
