Ella and her brother Emery are alone in a city that's starving to death. If they are going to survive, they must get away, upcountry, to find Emery's mum. But how can two kids travel such big distances across a dry, barren, and dangerous landscape? Well, when you've got five big doggos and a dry-land dogsled, the answer is you go mushing. But when Emery is injured, Ella must find a way to navigate them through rough terrain, and even rougher encounters with desperate people... Jay says: “After a worldwide food crisis, Emery and Ella must travel using their dog sled to Emery’s mothers place in rural Australia, facing many dangers. This fast-paced novel is my latest foray in the environmental disaster genre, and is one of my favourites. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the environmental message.” #favouritebook #TheDogRunner #librariesoninstagram #libraries #librariansreview #disasternovel #brenmacdibble

The very lovely @diaryofabookmum tagged me to show my #lastnownextreads so here they are..... •LAST - The Dog Runner by Bren MacDibble.... this is a middle-grade, environmental/post-apocalyptic story & it was a fast-paced adventure from start to finish! I loved the two main characters Ella & her brother Emery who have to treck across country with their amazing pack of dogs on a dry-land dogsled to escape the city & all the starving desperate people......a fantastic read & winner of the Junior fiction award in the NZ book award🙌 •NOW - The Testaments.....I don't need to say a lot about this one 🤭 I'm loving it so far though🙌 •NEXT - It's about bloody time. Period by @emmabarnett "Don't be revolted, lead the revolt - preferably with a tampon tucked proudly behind your ear".......I mean with a quote like that on the back how could I not want to read this book🤷‍♀️🤭😂😂 #gifted
•

I am finally catching up with the #bumblebeebookstack that @jaellareviews sent my way recently, complete with my lovely #beeshoes from @joules! .
🐝
I love bees and so was absolutely fascinated by #TheHive, a unique installation that highlights the importance of pollination in our food chain, on our recent visit to #KewGardens. ▶️
.
🐝
Illuminated by over 1,000 LED lights, The Hive represents  a vast honey bee hive.It’s linked to one of Kew’s hives and the lights flicker in time to vibrations caused when the bees communicate with each other.
.
🐝
Accompanying this dazzling display is a beautiful symphony of orchestral sounds performed in the key of C - the same key that bees buzz in.Together, the sound and light swell and diminish as the energy levels in Kew’s beehive surge.

Are you a bee lover?

"How to Bee" by Bren MacDibble. I love this book because the author thought outside the box to a world  where bees are extinct and the bravest kids have to do the work of the bees with thier own hands. I also like how Peony doesn't care to get a bit bloody and dirty. She's a country kid with her own opinions.

‘We’re gonna starve if we stay here’, Emery said. ‘If we’re gonna go, best go now.’ And he said it like going was something easy. Like all we have to do is walk away.

If you've been following me a while, then you may remember that all of last summer I didn't stop talking about a certain middle-grade book - How To Bee. This summer, Bren MacDibble has another brilliant book for me to shout about - The Dog Runner.
.
I'm reading it at the moment and absolutely flying through it, desperate to follow Ella and her brother on their journey to safety...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Many thanks to Ruth at @oldbarnbooks for knowing how much I love Bren's writing, and sending me a proof copy for review!

Resident Old Barn Dog Mojo posing with Bren MacDibble’s new book ‘The Dog Runner’ for yesterday’s #bringyourdogtoworkday. 
After a fungus has wiped out the all-important grasses on which most of our foodstuff are based, Ella and her brother Emery are alone in a city that's starving to death. If they are going to survive, they must get away, upcountry, to find Emery's mum. But how can two kids travel such big distances across a dry, barren and dangerous landscape? Their dogs take them sledding back to the origins of humanity on the continent and a way to preserve its future.

Bren says: 'I hope that The Dog Runner will get young people thinking and talking about the ways we currently manage our environment, where we source our food, and what we eat. Food security is an important issue, easily overlooked, and Australia is an interesting place to consider this, as it was extensively and successfully managed and farmed prior to the arrival of Europeans, their animals and plants.'

Dystopian middle grade set in Australia. If you’re giving this book as a gift, maybe include a packet of pumpkin seeds. Buy an extra packet for yourself while you’re at it ...
🐕 
Book featured: The Dog Runners by Bren MacDibble (brilliant author of How to Bee).
🐕 
If you follow my feed you would know I’ve just finished reading Young Dark Emu by Bruce Pascoe, which was coincidental and also, as it turns out, serendipitous — because info I learned from Pascoe’s book is relevant in MacDibble’s. In fact, maybe add a copy of Young Dark Emu to that gift you’re organising above. And read both books before you wrap them. (Everyone does this, right?)
🐕
NB for those of you with a sensitive reader at home: there is a bit of death and thriller-style survival in this one. .

These are among my favourite books. There are only a few books that I can read over and over again without losing interest, that take me to another world. So, in the hope that you will fall in love with them too, I will be talking about them in the near future.

Played an interview with Bren MacDibble about her truly excellent middle reader fiction, today. There's nothing so fine as really well written kids books. And imho Bren (who writes as Cally Black for YA readers) is one of the best.

There's no bee problem in Archie's garden - except for the risk of getting a little too close! He doesn't need Peony to help pollinate the flowers... yet! But he enjoyed her barkingly good adventure very much indeed.

Today on #TalesBeforeBedtime I revisit #HowToBee by #brenmacdibble @oldbarnbooks in honour of #worldbeeday
'How To Bee is unlike any story I have ever read. The narrative voice is heartfelt and the author uses a mild form of dialect to bring both her characters and setting to life. Seen through the eyes of eight year old Peony, we see great hardship and brutality but also friendship, courage and determination. This is at times a harsh and truthful read, tackling difficult issues of environment, poverty and abuse, unafraid to hide the cruelty and yet finding within the beauty of nature, family and what really matters. It’s a story about standing true to your dreams, and that with hard work, love and kindness we can help those dreams come true. It is also a reminder of how precious our natural world is and how we must do all we can to protect it for both us and future generations.'

'Honest, funny-sad and real, Sensitive is an unforgettable story about living with chronic illness, and about being yourself when all you really want to be is somebody else.' - @vikkiwakefield 🌻
Day three of celebrating the beautiful endorsements I've received for Sensitive! On Mon/Tues, I celebrated quotes from @cally_black aka #brenmacdibble 🐝 and @emilygalebooksetc 💗 Today it's Vikki Wakefield's turn!
💚 Vikki is another #loveozya author requiring no introduction. Her books are like fine wine - best consumed slowly, savouring each mouthful. She's been listed for every literary prize known to author-kind, won a SCBWI Golden Kite (among other awards) and basically she spends her days updating her resume which now comes in a three volume leverarch file. 😜 Kidding! But seriously... I love her work. Love it, love it, love it. I'm pretty stoked she thinks mine cuts the mustard too.
THANK YOU @vikkiwakefield for your support. 🌻💛 Reading a fellow author's work takes energy, and I am eternally grateful for the time you took to read Sensitive. Thanks too from @uqpbooks
