You may remember the photo of the beautiful Aaliyah and Zawadi clutching their copies of Buzzing! in South Africa. Well this week I received a photo of another two beautiful little girls each with a copy of my Buzzing! book, but this time they were even further away. Australia, to be precise!
Australia?! How very exciting!
I have it on good authority that the girls were ‘as pleased as punch’ with the book, and that ‘Shortly after, they both ran off to try and find some of the bugs mentioned in it.’
Well now, I wonder what they will find … . I’ve recently discovered (from reading Dave Goulson’s fascinating book A Sting in the Tail) that there are no bumblebees in Australia. Fancy that. (And fancy my not knowing that!) So they’ll draw a blank there. But I wish them much fun hunting the fabulous minibeast fauna of Down Under.
A big Thank You to Steve for sending me this lovely photo!
