Pumpy Bee, a Kids Book with Unusual Momentum!
Have you ever heard of a bee that has no buzz?
Well, meet Pumpy… Pumpy Bee to give him his full name.
Pumpy can still fly though. Oh yes, he can fly alright.
He just uses slightly different means… PUMP POWER!
He’s quite literally powered by FARTS!
Pumpy is unique indeed. But being different is not always easy. Sometimes the other bees can be very cruel.
One day, on his way to school, something happens that changes everything…
This funny wee book is a tale of how one special skill and a whole heap of bravery surpasses immense size and strength.
Written by Gavin Oattes and illustrated by Itchy Mac (Gordon Tait), this picture book contains over 26 pages of narrated story as well as an interactive pump game and a colouring in section.
There are many great sounds throughout this book including a whole load of pumps and a lovely theme tune written and performed by Hailey Beavis.
Made in a wee cottage in Scotland by Colin Usher of Coffee Table Junior.

#COLINUSHER : A Year as an iPhoneographer
‘Capturing the world in a way that makes it feel fresh.’
#COLINUSHER is a 64-page digital photography book for the iPad
(a book as an App), published by COFFEE TABLE.
#COLINUSHER presents a collection of pictorial moments taken between November 2012 and November 2013 by iPhoneographer and digital media chap Colin Usher, with the iPhone 4s and the app ‘Camera+’.
A misty beach in East Lothian, a disgruntled Labrador in a physiotherapy tank, sunshine on Leith, the night-lights of Lisbon, a birds eye view of main stage at T in the Park…. These are playful, opportunistic observations of objects and scenes that caught the iPhoneographer’s eye over the year.
‘He takes ordinary ideas and does something to them so that they become fresh and memorable… before you know it, you’re engrossed. And smiling. And thoughtful.’
Excerpt from the foreword by Lloyd Jerome, author of ‘Cricket by Candlelight
