Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow – about the first Busy Bee book

In Endangered Meadow the bees of Old Oak Meadow have to unite the meadow’s inhabitants to stop some developers building houses all over it. The UK has lost 97% of its meadows since the middle of the 20th century and the madness of the planning system means that councils want to build more little boxes where the only way to get anywhere is through owning a car. An unsustainable model of growth whether those cars are fossil fuel powered or are electric powered. So one clever bee, Beatrice, Bea to her friends, the hardest working bee in the hive, comes up with an ingenious idea of how to save the meadow. Can the bees and the other creatures of Old Oak Meadow save their home?

We need bees for our own selfish survival and through my books I try to show to the younger generation how important they are. The book is available globally via Amazon and two of the links are given below. It’s available in two print versions, a 9″x5″ paperback and A4 format with the large illustrations repeated at the back and also as an ebook. This is one of Alice Wright’s wonderful illustrations.
