About this deal

Beautifully written, passionate, blunt, uncompromising and very, very funny; not many books make me laugh out loud, but this one had me in stitches. Through informative chapters ranging from the psychological and environment to the inclusion of the beaver in myth, legend, art and literature, The Beaver Book is an ideal guide to its subject for all nature lovers, beautifully illustrated throughout with photography and artwork. It’s also a keen lament for the nature we’ve stamped out, and an impassioned ode to rewilding that will inspire Beaver Believers in Britain and beyond. The fun of Derek Gow’s book comes from the way it weaves together the reintroduction of beavers to Britain with his own rollicking life in the cause of ecological restoration.

Yet as proposals for reintroducing beavers are underway, re-establishing the beaver in Britain is still a controversial issue. The book is a triumph of determination over bureaucratic obfuscation, an essential read for everyone interested in nature conservation. From the beginning until the end, we send regular updates so you know where we are with your project. Except, you could read it to a toddler or maiden aunt and they would hear and see an utterly innocuous story about a shaggy pet, taken for a trim.Gow tells us this with the clear-sighted and good-humoured energy and purposefulness of the animals he has come to love as well as admire. To get started you’ll need to contact us with your book’s detailed synopsis, your ideas, key themes, and preferred style. With record numbers of beavers set to be reintroduced across the UK in 2021, securing the place of this mammal in the country’s ecosystem for generation’s to come, this is both a relevant and timely publication. It's one of the first days of cold - the winter is coming, in the USA RBG lies in state - the threat of a second lockdown looms - people are miserable, isolated - the. The authors have been actively involved in the study of beaver ecology, behaviour and reintroduction for many years.

I saw this book shared in a series of Facebook posts and my boyfriend and I laughed our heads off reading it together.Wherever she goes, it seems to be the centre of attention, more for its bushy coat than for any other reason. I wouldn't go as far as to say this was a good book but I came across it on a group I'm a member of on Facebook, on a day when I really just needed a good laugh and this did not disappoint. 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. Can everyone`s favourite insurance mathematician, Henri, combine the increasingly dangerous world of adventure parks with the unpredictability of blended-family life?

Derek Gow delves into the fascinating history of the Beaver and the politics which surround attempts to reintroduce them to the British wilderness. This authentic, impassioned manifesto-cum-memoir will hopefully have a major impact on what is likely to be a long-running controversy.

Sometime you read a book where the passion of the author and the beauty of the language is so immersive that you reach the end feeling that you’ve been on an incredible journey. providing of course, reintroductions are carried out with the blessing of the surrounding landowners and the local community. 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! In our age of massive wildlife depletion, British lovers of nature have long been crying out for major change. This isn’t really a children’s book but I feel like most children will miss the double entendres (so it should be OK for them to read this) which means this would be a really funny book for the entire family to read together (and make storytime more fun for the parents).

They are without doubt one of the world’s best natural engineers with their ability to create new wetland habitats, which then become home to many other creatures who need a “watery” landscape in which to live and survive. Despite the text being only 44 pages long, the authors cover everything you might want to know about these fascinating rodents. Through the timeless power of double entendre, Reach Around Books will have the reader in tears of laughter while to any juvenile listener they are completely innocent.Once we have all the information we need, we’ll develop a first draft and work closely with you until you’re happy with the cover. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Derek Gow assails officialdom in this unsparing and funny memoir, recounting the long struggle to bring wild beavers back to Britain.
