Bee-utify yourself with The Grunts!

Yesterday saw publication not only of The Grunts all at Sea, the second book in the hilarious The Grunts series by Philip Ardagh and Axel Scheffler, but ALSO of the paperback edition of the first book in the series, The Grunts in Trouble. Fans of The Grunts will know that wherever Mr Grunt goes, a swarm of angry bees is never too far behind – and there’s rarely anything they’d like more than to congregate around his chin into a buzzing beard. And so to celebrate this double-publication day, we have some excellent bee-themed goodies to give away!

There are four prize-bundles – each consisting of a paperback of The Grunts in Trouble, some bee-shaped chocolates, and some Burt’s Bees beauty products – up for grabs, and to win one, we have an appropriately apian competition for you to enter.

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is suggest the best name for a beard of angry bees – Honey grabbers, Planet of the Apians, BuzzBee’d (OK, that one’s a bit of a stretch…) – anything bee (or even beard) related can be eligible! Tell us yours in the comments underneath this post or on Twitter to @NosyCrowBooks with the hashtag #beardofbees and we’ll pick our favourites at the end of the day!

Winners must have a UK postal address – good luck!
