So begins Bill Turnbull’s charming account of how he stumbled into the mysterious world of beekeeping (sometimes literally). Despite many setbacks – including being stung in the head (twice) on his first day of training – beekeeping somehow taught Bill a great deal about himself and the world around him. At the same time, his story highlights the very real threats to Britain’s bee population, and what we can do to create a better environment for these vital a rather wonderful creatures. Fascinating and often hilarious, The Bad Beekeepers Club is a universally appealing story about a very singular passion.
