The Busy Bee stories

I’ve written two Busy Bee stories so far. The first is called Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow. It deals with the problem, especially relevant in the UK, of building over meadows and farmland. These new developments have been built on the basis that everyone will own or at least travel by car. A totally unsustainable model for <0.1% of the global population. The planning system has been so bad that the country has lost 97% of its meadows since the middle of the 20th century. In this first story Bea and her friends disguise themselves as red bees to try and persuade people that a rare species lives in Old Oak Meadow.

The second story, Busy Bee and the Silent Spring takes its title from Rachel Carson’s groundbreaking book first published in 1962. This very brave woman took on the male dominated agrochemical industry and they tried to destroy at a time when she was suffering from cancer. In the story the bees of Old Oak Meadow discover a farmer next door using banned pesticides. Can they stop him.

The stories are meant for the 8-12 year old reader although adult reviewers have said that they thoroughly enjoyed them too. I hope that you or your children will too. Endangered Meadow is available as an A4 printed book and ebook,, and also as a 6″x9″ paperback, Silent Spring is available as 6″x9″ paperback and ebook,
