Description

A chance encounter with Rainbow People almost 30 years ago is the inspiration for a new book for children, which explores the challenges around climate change which are posed today and poised to confront future generations.

Two best friends, one great journey, the adventure of a lifetime. Their quest, to find The Last Beekeeper, and save the world.

They learn so much along the way. With the end in sight the outcome remains in the balance.

It falls to you to make the difference, to determine what happens next…

The Last Beekeeper is written to be read aloud in an inter-generational experience; a book for those young at heart, children of all ages.

Explore. Engage. Enjoy the journey.

'It is lovely to see such beautiful writing about nature and the crisis we face and how we can respond to it. This is a timely and important publication.'

John’s writing will inspire young people to be a part of and indeed to lead the important conversations that are an essential starting point in bringing about such restoration, but more than that it will also motivate them further to really want to engage with this process of change and become ecologists, marine biologists, entomologists, etc. This is a timely piece of writing, and I am delighted to be associated with its launch.

Even before its launch during the midterm school holidays, The Last Beekeeper is creating quite a stir thanks to its stunningly powerful and poignant book cover. It features a painting by Canadian artist, Autumn Skye Morrison, entitled ‘Resilience’.

This exceptional work by Autumn Skye which dates to 2017 is so moving and encapsulates the spirit and essence of the story. I’m absolutely thrilled to have permission to use this image on the book. It’s a perfect match to capture the reader’s attention as they set out on the story. In this instance I certainly hope that it’s a case of where you can judge the book by the cover,” says the author.

The book cover and typography are by talented graphic designer, Gavin Cowley, who is originally from Tullamore and now resides in Monasterevin.

The cover notes on the book hint as to what lies in store for the reader.
