Buzz of a Party – Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow

Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow is a story about some bees trying to save their meadow from some evil, grasping housing developers. Bea is the hardest working bee in the hive and she comes up with the idea to try and fool the local council that a rare and endangered species lives in the meadow. The developers however are not going to let some bees get in the way of their profit but little do they know that they will be taking on all the creatures of the meadow in a fight to protect their homes.

In the UK we have lost 97% of our meadows since the middle of the 20th century much of them to the obesity of urban sprawl and a planning system unfit for purpose. Some research shows that meadows are very good carbon sinks, perhaps as good as forests. In the UK however, as in many other countries, the countryside has been built over.

The book is available as an ebook or in two printed forms, a 9″x6″ paperback sized book or as an A4 large easy read version. This link is for the Amazon.co.uk site A4 version, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Busy-Endangered-Meadow-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/198320384X/, and this is for the smaller paperback, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Busy-Endangered-Meadow-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/B08BW5Y3CS/.

There’s also a pdf version available from Junagarh Media.

There’s T-shirts for children of Alice Wright’s wonderful book cover with or without the story title available from our Teemill site. These are printed on organic cotton and so, are we hope, the lightest of load possible on the environment. You will find out on Teemill’s website the story of this cotton. It does make the items for sale more expensive than less environmentally friendly clothing.

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, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Busy-Endangered-Meadow-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/198320384X/, and also as a 6″x9″ paperback, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Busy-Endangered-Meadow-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/B08BW5Y3CS/. Silent Spring is available as 6″x9″ paperback and ebook, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Busy-Silent-Spring-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/B088JFN1ZV/.

A rare red bee is spotted

This is the illustration from my story Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow where a couple camping in Old Oak Meadow catch site of the disguised Bea. Bea and her other bees are disguising themselves in the hope that they will be thought of as a rare species and that this will stop the meadow being built over by greedy housing developers. The story is available from Amazon in A4 printed format and ebook, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Busy-Endangered-Meadow-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/198320384X/, and as a 6″x9″ paperback, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Busy-Endangered-Meadow-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/B08BW5Y3CS/.

What’s so special about the bees?

Some council workers arrive at Old Oak Meadow to see if they can observe some of the special bees that have been seen there. An illustration from Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow, the first Busy Bee story for 8-12 year old readers. The story is about a meadow that has been marked as a site for a housing development. In the UK 97% of meadows have been lost since the middle of the 20th century and recent research has indicated that they are extremely good at carbon capture. Nature knows best. The book is available both as an ebook and printed version from Amazon, A4 and colouring book, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Busy-Endangered-Meadow-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/198320384X/, and 6″ x 9″ paperback, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Busy-Endangered-Meadow-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/B08BW5Y3CS/.

Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow reviewed

I was very lucky in 2018 when the Devon Beekeepers Association reviewed this story and wrote some really nice words about it. The book and ebook are available on Amazon Soon to be released will be the follow up Busy Bee and the Silent Spring. I am looking to work with charities and organisations that promote and help sell my books. In return I will donate a percentage of any sales.

Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow by Paul Noel

“A bee story for children” – that was the description sent with Paul Noel’s book, “Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow”, and on the face of it that’s exactly what it is. A tale with an intrepid honey bee called Beatriz at its core, ready and willing to use her intelligence and super-fast flight in the battle against the enemy – those who would seek to destroy the natural habitat of the field she calls home, together with her fellow creatures that also live there.

Yet it’s more than ‘a bee story for children’, for while they will love the heroic antics of Beatriz, or ‘Bea’ to everyone who knows her, adults will find characters familiar to them too – officious bureaucrats, eager nature-loving campaigners, boffins, dastardly developers and potentially wicked planners! The turning point when all the humans and animals come together is a joyous highlight!

No doubt we’ve all heard of a field that is ripe for necessary development and Paul Noel’s fantasy is one that we can easily follow and understand. While the drama and the suspense gives joy to younger listeners and readers, it represents important issues raised by the need for more homes and the conflict between those building houses and those passionate about protecting the natural environment.

As ever with children’s books you get most out of the story by suspending your disbelief and remembering that it’s simply a story to entertain and not provide a full education of the lifecycle of the honeybee and its behaviour in the hive and in the field – there are plenty of less exciting books, which are designed to give real insight to those of us who are interested in bee facts. “Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow” doesn’t ignore general bee behaviour, but it’s full of fun and allows the imagination to take over, helped along with drawings that reflect the overall upbeat feel. The pictures are ideal for children to colour in, making it even more entertaining and better value.

Any beekeeper, indeed any adult, will not be bored if they find themselves reading the story of Bea trying to save her meadow. Just one question remains, what might Bea do next for surely “Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow” is the first of a series?
