Katy Hounsell-Robert was in Sarum College Bookshop on Thursday 10th April to launch her charming new children’s book, Ben’s Bees.
A first for Sarum College Bookshop; launching a children’s book! A group of over 20, including 7 children, were treated to Katy Hounsell-Roberts and a selection of volunteers, reading passages from the book. We were also joined by a Queen Bee made specially for Katy by Mary Turner, maker of the Thunderbird puppets.
The story is about a boy called Ben with a remarkable talent – he can turn into a bee! He goes to stay with his grandfather near Quarr Abbey on the Isle of Wight. The monks of the Abbey and his grandfather both keep bees, and that’s when Ben discovers the amazing world of the hive – from the inside!
