University of Suffolk lecturer launches children’s book

8 Apr 2019 9:15AM

A lecturer in Graphic Design and Illustration is about to launch his first children’s book, entitled ‘I saw a BEE’.

Rob Ramsden will launch the book at Little Rascals, Snape Maltings on the 13 April.

Rob said, “The simple message in ‘I saw a BEE’ is BEE friendly, in every sense. A little boy is alarmed when he discovers a bee, at first he is frightened and reacts aggressively, but gradually he realises that the bee won't harm him and that they can be friends.”

Antenna, Royal Entomological Society have said, “At a time when insects are in steep decline, ensuring that the next generation has a positive attitude to the natural world is imperative. Here is a book that will initiate that mind set. Parents, Grandparents and children will all enjoy reading or listening to this over and over again.”

Its publication will be celebrated with a double book launch with fellow author and illustrator Rose Robbins and her book ‘Me and My Sister. Both are published by Scallywag Press and already have been well received.

Rob’s second book in the series, ‘We saw a SEED’ is due for publication in August, and a third book will follow in 2020.

‘I saw a BEE’ and ‘Me and My Sister’ will be launched on 13 April, 11am-3pm at Little Rascals, Snape Maltings.
