The Water Vole family have moved into the bottom of the garden. Bert, the father of the family, enjoys gardening and growing food for the Garden Tribe and loves the bugs and insects that help fertilise it. But when the neighbouring beetles keep him awake at night, Bert dedicates his time to building them a cosy new home of their own. Includes ecological notes and instructions for building your own garden bug house.

A new series introducing the Garden Tribe to the world of Celestine and the Hare.

Reviews:

'A small and perfectly formed joy of a book with informed facts double checked by the wonderful Dr Sarah Beynon.' Jackie Morris

'Bert's Garden is about more than caring for our environment. It's about caring for each other. And there's no more important story than that. It is, quite simply, a delight.' Philip Ardagh

'Karin Celestine's world may be soft and woolly, but it has all the challenges of our own. In this gorgeously illustrated story, Bert is annoyed by newcomers, but they help in his beautiful garden. Celestine's stories are heart-breakingly honest, and her heroes are vulnerable as well as strong. You will want to crawl right into her photographs to live.' Mimi Thebo

'Karin Celestine creates worlds full of the things that matter most in life; friendship, kindness, cups of tea and bramble biscuits. Bert’s Garden follows Bert’s conundrum about a beetle that keeps him awake at night. Not only is this story as warm and huggable as a woolly covered hot water bottle, it is also the most charming and entertaining one about ecology that I have ever read. Where else do you find circus mice? I’m sure Bert will inspire lots of readers to encourage mini beasts into their gardens too.' Gill Lewis


'Bert's Garden is a beautiful and charming children's tale of mild peril and lack of sleep set in an allotment... What is so lovely about Karin Celestine's books is how such a tiny book so succinctly acknowledges the concerns of everyday life, which can be resolved by the caring creatures of the Tribe, and how strongly they carry the message of caring, kindness and community.' Fantastical Library

Praise for the Celestine and the Hare series:

'Karin Celestine's wonderful, life-affirming books encourage us all to keep in touch with and to nurture the playfulness, exploration and hope of childhood. These are books that make the world a better place.' Zoe Toft, Playing by the Book

'I only wish these had been around when I was six.' Nicola Davies

'I want to shrink and live in Bertram's world.' Gill Lewis

'So beautiful you'll want to climb into the pages.' Mimi Thebo
