About Fine Feather Press

Nostalgia for the past, together with a desire for 21st-century children to capture the essence of a bygone era, are the driving forces behind Fine Feather Press, a specialist natural history publishing company.

Established by two friends, Andrea Pinnington and Caz Buckingham, the business has been trading for five years. Setting up a company that’s focused on producing printed material in an increasingly digital world seemed like the business plan from hell, but the pair believed strongly in their ethos and it’s paying off.

Their bestseller is The Little Book of Garden Bird Songs which has proved to be a major hit with young and old alike. It went to number one on Amazon and has sold over 100,000 copies around the world.

“We’ve been taken aback by the way in which adults enjoy our sound books as much as children. Grandparents especially find that it gives them a way to enjoy the outside with their grandchildren, where they are both learning at the same time. There aren’t many ways to achieve this, so it’s certainly struck a chord.”

Both Andrea and Caz have significant experience in publishing, having worked for a number of well-established publishers. Before setting up Fine Feather Press, Andrea had authored 25 children’s non-fiction books and had worked as an editor on many more. Caz’s background is in art direction and book design and, having forged a friendship while working together, the pair realised that they had the skills to set up business and produce their own titles on a subject that they are passionate about: nature.

“Both of us spent significant amounts of our childhood in the countryside during an era when you could leave the house in the morning, roam free all day and return when your stomach told you it was time to go home for tea,” says Caz.

“Very few children these days have that sort of freedom, plus the lure of virtual worlds seen via a computer and from a warm, comfy chair makes it less likely that children would want to spend lots of time outside.” Both Andrea and Caz have teenage children, so they know, first-hand, the challenges of getting youngsters engaged with the great outdoors.
The realisation that many children are growing up without even a basic knowledge and appreciation of the natural world provides the driving force for Fine Feather Press. They’re not alone in their concern, with organisations around the world campaigning for ways in which to encourage children to get outside.

“We regard what we do as having two benefits: our titles help to bring the natural world to young children in a fun and educational way, plus they provide the tools for parents to interact with their children in a way that costs little yet is extremely rewarding,” says Andrea.

Although publishing can provide challenging business models, they are encouraged by the way their work is being received. Fine Feather Press now has 30 titles in print and a network of sales reps in the form of a company called Bounce.

“We could see that there was a gap in the market for good quality, highly visual, nature-based titles at affordable prices so we were optimistic we could make a success of the business if we went about it in the right way,” says Andrea. “We now sell to many countries in Europe and to North America. There seems to be a real demand for authentic, attractive nature publications, especially ones that offer something different and engaging for today’s children such as our sound and activity books.”

“We produce all the written and design content ourselves as well as much of the photography and juggling this with the business side can, at times, be challenging. It can seem indulgent to go for a walk on a crisp winter morning, camera in hand, rather than sit in front of our computer screens, but if we didn’t get out we’d have nothing to publish! It’s certainly a world away from the nine-to-five careers we used to have and we wouldn’t swap it for the world.”

Noah the Narwhal: A Tale Of Downs and Ups,” is picture book for ages 4-8 (and adults!)

The story follows the ups and downs of a week in the life of Noah – a friendly sea mammal who deals with chronic migraines, and the uncertainties this condition brings.

Noah the Narwhal has good days when he is productive and social, and pain days, when he needs to rest. His friends and family can find it difficult to handle the unpredictability, but in the end, they realize that having Noah in their lives is absolutely worth it! For the people in our lives – young and old – whose bodies work a little differently, Noah the Narwhal is here to remind us that being valued and loved are just as constant as any chronic condition.

Alan The Christmas Donkey
The little donkey who made a big difference

By Tracy Garton

Pan Paperback ~ £7.99

This is the charming true story of a little donkey who helped save the sanctuary that had taken him in.
For animal lovers everywhere, ‘Alan The Christmas Donkey’ is a funny, warm and inspiring read.


‘Warm, funny and charming’
Daily Express

Tracy Garton had run the Radcliffe Donkey Sanctuary for twenty years, creating a safe haven for more than sixty sick, unwanted and mistreated donkeys. But after a devastatingly difficult winter she didn’t know if she could carry on. Then, in the first week of January, the phone rang. A donkey had been abandoned 130 miles away. Rushing to his rescue Tracy found Alan – forlorn, balding and shivering – tethered up tightly in a supermarket car park. Barely able to walk on his painfully overgrown hooves, he had been left to die. Tracy wasn’t going to give up on him.

Over the next twelve months, as Tracy grappled with attacks from vandals and perilous flash floods, Alan gradually recovered – turning into a loveable rogue. As Christmas rolled around, Tracy was too worried about the future to enjoy the festive season. She had no idea that the shy skinny animal she’d rescued was going to give her the greatest gift of all . . .

Leading dietitian says replacing free sugars with alternative sweeteners may help Australians tackle the
country’s growing obesity burden.
Replacing free sugars with alternative sweeteners is an easy and effective way to help Australians lose weight believes leading dietitian, academic and co-author of The Ultimate Guide to Sugars and Sweeteners, Dr Alan Barclay.
Almost two in three Australians are currently overweight or obese and the country is facing an obesity epidemic. The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare has found that Australians are consuming an average of 60g of free sugars each day, the equivalent of more than 14 teaspoons of white sugar .
This is more than the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) recommendation that people reduce their sugar intake to less than 10 per cent of their total energy intake, which equates to 54 g or less than 13 teaspoons per day for Australian adults.
Most concerning is the fact that more than 90 per cent (on average 52 grams or 12 teaspoons ) of Australian’s free sugars intake comes from added sugars, which are sugars added to food during processing or preparation, such as sugar added to tea and coffee and in baking. Added sugars are not naturally occurring, such as those sugars found in fruit and milk. Small changes in our diet and behaviour could have a significant impact on the nation’s added sugars consumption.
Dr Barclay said the alternative sweetener category was often misunderstood by Australians who avoid them altogether, due to misconceptions about what they contain and their health implications.
“Many of us consume too much free sugar. However, alternative sweeteners are often lumped into the same category and there’s a perception both must be avoided,” says Barclay.
“In fact, there is a large body of scientific evidence that actually shows that the substitution of free sugars for alternative sweeteners helps people to lose weight and also keep the weight off in the long term , , .”

GYG Serum is very potent and can deliver a much greater concentration of nutrients, deeper into the skin. Ingredients are organic oils of Grapeseed, Vitamin E, Lavender, Rose, Frankincense and Helichrysum. GYG Organic Facial Serum One ounce $50; 1.2 ounce $35.

GYG Organic Body Serum

While moisturizers sit on the skin, GYG Organic Body Serum absorbs into the skin bringing nourishing, organic oils that quickly penetrate skin to hydrate, heal, and tone. GYG Organic Body Serum is concentrated with active ingredients that penetrate into the top layers of skin to renew lipids, the layers in and around skin cells which form a barrier to keep moisture locked in.

Beard Oil is a leave-in conditioner for your beard that consists of a blend of carrier oils and essential oils.

Carrier oils comprise the majority of the solution and literally act to “carry” the oil from the tip of the whisker to the end of the hair follicle. The carrier oils are the oils with the conditioning benefits for your skin and beard. Essential oils are used for their health benefits in addition to their fragrance, and comprise a very small amount of the total solution. This blend of oil combines to create a powerful solution that softens whiskers, hydrates the beard to eliminate beard itch, and reduces split ends. It also has antimicrobial benefits. Regular application of beard oil will soften your beard so when you’re kissing your sweetheart(s) you won’t leave their face(s) rawer than a winter wind in Wisconsin. When people first look at you, whether it be your boss, clients, significant other, children, parents, or dog, they naturally first look at your face. Half of your manly profile is covered by a beard. With all those eyes checking out your beard, and not to mention the number of times you catch yourself running your fingers through your beard, one simply cannot deny the importance of having a soft, healthy, and hydrated beard. Let’s face it, you’ve just got to deep condition that prime California real estate baby. Whenever you wash your face, the soap strips away natural oils that are produced to protect your skin. Beard oil is applied after a wash to replenish the lost oils. It helps protect your beard and the skin underneath. If your beard is long enough to warrant using a beard comb you can use one to help distribute the oil through your beard. The teeth of the beard comb will help detangle your beard and apply beard oil at the same time.

The Hot Sauce was a awarded a silver medal at the Australian Fine Food Awards in Sydney just months after being released.

Recently, Bear Brewing has also added an even hotter sauce to its range, called Reaper Sauce. It’s made with a fermented base and loads of Carolina Rea per and Ghost chillies, and extra spice comes from black pepper and black mustard seeds – so it’s not for the faint-hearted!

For Christmas, Bear Brewing is offering a special Hot Sauce pack, which includes 3 sauces (Hot Sauce, Reaper Sauce and Kimchi Sauce), and free delivery Australia-wide.
