About this deal

I already loved the idea of beavers being brought back to the UK, but by the time I’d finished reading Derek’s book, I was ready to chain myself to the railings outside 10 Downing Street to help make it happen. It can be used as a field guide to identify beaver field signs and observe beavers in the wild by wildlife surveyors or general land users, or as an introductory guide for anyone with an interest in beavers and how to recognise them. I had this book recommended to me by a friend, who hoped I would read and review Bimisi Tayanita’s handful of “children’s stories meant for adults”. It’s not just about beavers – it’s about humans too, and how, when we really set our minds to it, we can make a difference.

Brenda’s Beaver Needs a Barber‘ as you may be able to gather from the title alone, is brimming with double entendres, which should certainly keep the grown ups entertained during story time! If your kid is offended by our books, that implies they understand terms only found in the Urban Dictionary™. If your kid is offended by our books, that implies they understand terms only found in the Urban Dictionary™. One parent shared the revelatory book in a post on Facebook which subsequently went viral, receiving more than 6,000 shares and 10,000 comments - so that's a lot of people who have seen Brenda's beaver now.It's part of a series of 'Reach Around Books' which are riddled with double entendres, meaning you can read to your children without being bored out of your mind. She is Field Operations Manager for the Scottish Beaver Trial and is currently undertaking her PhD in beaver health and welfare. Wherever she goes, it seems to be the centre of attention, more for its bushy coat than for any other reason. As Bimisi and Sumguyen made their way from one bar to another, they took pause to to enjoy the rhythms of a homeless crooner who was soulfully picking his guitar.

This is part of a series of kids' books that are for parents to read and laugh at the double entendres that fly over their kids' heads at storytime. But now the beaver is on the brink of a comeback, with wild beaver populations, licensed and unlicensed, emerging all over Britain. With their unique scaly tail, chainsaw teeth, powerful scent and astonishing architectural prowess, beavers are unlike any other creature in the world. This authentic, impassioned manifesto-cum-memoir will hopefully have a major impact on what is likely to be a long-running controversy.Observing that 'the beaver is an ecosystem engineer, architect of watery kingdoms and riparian habitats teeming with life', the farmer-turned-ecologist Derek Gow shares an inspirational, often witty, account of his fight to re-establish the once-native species in waterways across England and Scotland in the face of determined opposition from the government, landowners and even some conservationists.

Pages to support the Challenge Awards and some of the Activity Badges, particularly those worked towards at home. Derek is a naturalist with a strong case of beaver fever shared effusively with equal doses of charm, belligerence and artistic genius. It was a sultry August night in Old Town Scottsdale as Bimisi and Sumguyen made their way from one bar to another.If you still want to read this book to your children, please do not forget to tell them the emphasized mistake being portrayed throughout the story. When Sumguyen threw a five into his tip jar the artist looked up, thanked him with a nod and said, "That is a beautiful beard. With a piercing and evocative style, Tuomainen was one of the first to challenge the Scandinavian crime-genre formula, and his poignant, dark and hilarious The Man Who Died became an international bestseller, shortlisting for the Petrona and Last Laugh Awards.
