Sapling Green is a gentle, quiet girl with a secret she is scared to show the world. Wynn Farthing is funny and noisy, and the best at climbing high into the branches of the old schoolyard tree. One terrible day, after a storm, the gardener says the tree has to come down. Can Sapling use her secret to save the day?

This beautifully illustrated, heart-warming and relatable story is an important reminder that our differences are our strengths, and we should always accept each other for who we are.

Manuka: The Biography of an extraordinary honey

GBP £14.99 Tax Included

 


Dr. Peter Molan, MBE, the discoverer of the unique antibacterial activity in manuka honey.
“There are things in this book even I didn’t know about manuka. I literally couldn’t put it down.”

Manuka: The Biography of an Extraordinary Honey chronicles the remarkable ‘rags-to-riches’ story of manuka honey, as seen through the eyes of a New Zealand beekeeping specialist who watched it unfold from the very beginning. It’s a great tale of science, in which an inquisitive university lecturer found something totally unexpected in a product everyone had written off.

It’s also an entertaining account of the way that seemingly simple discovery caught the international media’s attention, helping enterprising New Zealanders to develop manuka honey-based products and take them all around the globe. But above all else it’s a story of hope for the future, sounding a note of optimism in a world that for good reason feels saddened and sometimes even afraid about the future of the special relationship we humans have always had with those marvellous creatures, the honey bees.
