I had been seasoned by adversity, and tutored by experience, and I longed to redeem my lost honour in the eyes of those whose opinion was more than that of all the world to me. Agnes Grey is forced to become a governess due to her family's circumstances, but struggles with the reality of disobedient children, disdainful employers and an isolated existence. Written from Anne's experience, this is a truly personal and moving coming-of-age story. With a stunning cover from Instagram sensation Bodil Jane.

Winnie-the-Pooh: Helps the Bees!

Author: Egmont Publishing UK Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 29/04/2021

Learn about bees with Winnie-the-Pooh so you can help them too! One hot summer, Winnie-the-Pooh's tummy was grumbling and his cupboard was empty, so he went to find some honey. But the bees in the Hundred Acre Wood weren't making as much honey as they usually would, so Pooh decided to find out all that he could about bees so he could help them. Being a generous sort of bear, Pooh has shared his story together with everything he's learnt about bees in this book, so you can help your local bees too! The British Beekeepers Association assisted with the creation of this book, so it includes fascinating real-life bee facts, including how they make honey and what flowers bees like best, as well as top tips for how readers can help their local bee population, so we can all be honey heroes! This book is perfect for animal-loving, eco-friendly children of all ages who want to do their part to help save the planet. Bee numbers have rapidly declined in recent years. This book gives simple tips for small things we can all do that will have a big impact on making your surroundings better for bees. The book is bee-friendly too, as it's printed using vegetable-based inks on FSC-approved paper. Winnie-the-Pooh is the perfect character to teach everyone about bees and how we can ALL help them. The BBKA is proud to have assisted Egmont Books with the making of this book. Anne Rowberry, The British Beekeepers Association Did you know...? Bees can sleep between five and eight hours a day. There are many different types of bees including solitary bees who like to live alone and bumble bees who make the loud buzzing noise that bees are famous for. A busy bee colony can collect up to 20kg of pollen and nectar a year, the weight of a four-year-old child. There are many more fun bee facts and top bee tips in this book, as well as a beautifully illustrated story about how Pooh and friends help their bees. It also includes a gorgeous double-sided poster to pop in your window, so you can help spread the important message to Help Our Bees!
