New books in 2018
Author Richard ffrench-Constant and illustrator Emma Wood have created a lovely picture book for children to make them aware of climate change as it affects the habitat and hence behaviour of African elephants.
The Butterfly Collection celebrates all 58 species of British butterflies in splendid colour images and verse, with poems mixing fun and fact, to be enjoyed by all those already passionate about butterflies whilst enthusing others to become so.
A sparkling mixture of poetry, prose and colour photography about the wildlife to be found along the north Norfolk Coast. A great souvenir for friends and family...and for yourself. This is the second book in the Encounters with Norfolk Wildlife series.

It's about time! We are preparing a new website for Brambleby Books, more friendly, easier to search and with more, hopefully useful, features. The planned launch date is 3rd November 2018, coinciding with the Taunton Literary Festival.
Brambleby Books Ltd., founded in 2002 by two professional biologists, publishes books on all aspects of natural history, including biodiversity and environmental issues, and poetry. We are especially interested in the interphase between science and the arts. Our aim is to inform, educate and entertain as wide an audience as possible as to the benefits of observing, recording, studying and conserving wildlife in all its diverse forms.
