So once you've finished looking at Brenda's beaver, you've got putting Tony's nuts in your mouth to look forward to. It can be used as a field guide to identify beaver field signs and observe beavers in the wild by wildlife surveyors or general land users, or as an introductory guide for anyone with an interest in beavers and how to recognise them. She is the author of The Breathless Zoo: Taxidermy and the Cultures of Longing (2012) and has curated natural history exhibits for the Museum of Vancouver and the Beaty Biodiversity Museum at the University of British Columbia.

As a keystone species, the beaver plays a vital role in the creation of sustainable wetland habitats through its damming activities, providing living opportunities for a broad spectrum of wildlife. Starring a charming cast of characters, Nicholas Oldland’s light hearted, contemporary fable highlights the importance of taking care of each other and the world around us. Except, you could read it to a toddler or maiden aunt and they would hear and see an utterly innocuous story about a shaggy pet, taken for a trim. Observing that 'the beaver is an ecosystem engineer, architect of watery kingdoms and riparian habitats teeming with life', the farmer-turned-ecologist Derek Gow shares an inspirational, often witty, account of his fight to re-establish the once-native species in waterways across England and Scotland in the face of determined opposition from the government, landowners and even some conservationists.

He was previously the Project Manager for the Scottish Beaver Trial and has worked in wildlife conservation and reserve management for over 20 years. When Sumguyen threw a five into his tip jar the artist looked up, thanked him with a nod and said, "That is a beautiful beard. Once we have all the information we need, we’ll develop a first draft and work closely with you until you’re happy with the cover.

One parent shared the revelatory book in a post on Facebook which subsequently went viral, receiving more than 6,000 shares and 10,000 comments - so that's a lot of people who have seen Brenda's beaver now. With their building prowess and distinctive features, beavers are a rare, but wonderful sight in UK waters following their extinction and re-introduction.I wouldn't go as far as to say this was a good book but I came across it on a group I'm a member of on Facebook, on a day when I really just needed a good laugh and this did not disappoint. The definitive badge and awards guide for Beavers and Leaders featuring all you need to know about the badges and how to earn them!

But now the beaver is on the brink of a comeback, with wild beaver populations, licensed and unlicensed, emerging all over Britain. As Bimisi and Sumguyen made their way from one bar to another, they took pause to to enjoy the rhythms of a homeless crooner who was soulfully picking his guitar. With their unique scaly tail, chainsaw teeth, powerful scent and astonishing architectural prowess, beavers are unlike any other creature in the world.A hugely entertaining book about overcoming the human obstacles to the natural regeneration/nature self-healing we so desperately need on every square inch of the earth right now. Beaver Field Signs: teeth marks; felled and gnawed trees; grazing lawns/vascular plants; feeding stations; foraging trails; lodges and burrows; dams; canals; scent mounds; faeces; tracks/prints. If somehow you are still convinced this is just a nice little story about a woman and her scruffy semi-aquatic rodent, then perhaps some of author Bimisi's other titles will make you reconsider: Spank the Monkey Lends a Hand, Suzy Likes to Look at Balls, Put Tony's Nuts in Your Mouth!

It was a sultry August night in Old Town Scottsdale as Bimisi and Sumguyen made their way from one bar to another. This fascinating book promotes a future co-existence with beavers in Britain by providing factual information on their biology, behaviour and the habitats they help to generate. It’s also a keen lament for the nature we’ve stamped out, and an impassioned ode to rewilding that will inspire Beaver Believers in Britain and beyond. In characteristic punchy style, Derek Gow has given us the full saga of beaver reintroduction to the UK.
