This is an illustration from Busy Bee and the Silent Spring. Here, Dr Bee is seen attending to various creatures from the meadow that have started to feel unwell. It’s written for the 8-12 year old reader and features a very special bee call Bea who along with the other bees and the rest of the creatures living in Old Oak Meadow have to stop a farmer using banned pesticides. I remember Rachel Carson’s amazing book and fight against the agrochemical industry the title of which is Silent Spring. I named the book in her honour.
The book has been well received with the Scottish Beekeepers Association putting a copy of it along with the first book, Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow, in their Edinburgh library. It’s available globally on different Amazon websites and here are a couple of links https://www.amazon.co.uk/Busy-Silent-Spring-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/B088JFN1ZV/ and https://www.amazon.com/Busy-Silent-Spring-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/B088JFN1ZV/.
