New Zealand-born author Bren MacDibble's first novel for children to be released in the UK explores the all-too-likely near future scenario of a world without bees. Brave and fierce nine year-old Peony wants more than anything to become a 'bee' - scrambling around in the fruit trees, pollinating them by hand with delicate feathers. But her mother wants her to leave the shack in the orchard and go live with her in the big city, where the people live behind high walls. Winner in 2018 of both the Australian Children's Book Council Children's Book of the Year (Younger Readers) and the New Zealand Book Award for its age category,  The Bookseller said: 'Quirky, original and heartfelt, this is an all too plausible dystopian adventure, exploring themes of family loyalty and the environment.'
