Barack Obama’s reading was “all the buzz” yesterday when a swarm of bees attacked a group of children as they listened to his presidential version of the Maurice Sendak’s classic book Where the Wild Things Are.

The children were set upon as they sat in the White House Garden for story time with Obama as part of the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

The bees were most likely from the White House’s very own beehive on the South Lawn where 70,000 bees are kept to provide honey for the kitchen.

The annual egg roll, which is now in its 138th year, sees thousands of children and their families from all 50 states in the US invited to the White House to take part in the Easter egg roll.
