This book is so amazing, really! But, do you know how sad I'm when I hear this third book doesn't continue to be translated into Indonesia?? 😭😭😭😭 And I hope, someday that story will be filmed soon... . . . #novel #fivekingdoms #skyriders #rogueknight #brandonmull #bestsellerbook
Together with @zoesoulplay, Gunter's Fables presented our books and their toys at the Reddam House mini market last Saturday! Perfect for Christmas gifts which will provide so much to your child for years to come. Please contact us if you wish to make an order. We were represented by the lovely ladies Bonnie-Lee and Zoe and it was wonderful to interact with the community.
All your life you will learn about new things you have never heard about. Yet they are important. So better keep an open mind – always ready for a surprise! Wise words from the mama duck who is the main character in our Fable: Don't feed the Ducks. Available soon in our online store! 🦆
An excerpt from the "Did you Know" section of our Fable "Instant Fish Food". Food production uses 10% of the world’s energy, 50% of all land and 80% of all fresh water. Three million tons of fresh produce is left to rot on the field because of its unacceptable appearance, insufficient labour and prices being too low. What is wrong with this model? While 14.3% of American families are suffering from food insecurity, US retail stores wasted 20 million tons of food. Supermarkets lose $15 billion a year in unsold fruit and vegetables. How can we do better? See our Fable for more. Online for purchase in print and download soon.
Why are we only thinking about how much food can be produced per acre? The time has come to see how many tons we can produce in all the space we have – on land and sea! Our Fable "Dimensions and Density" offers real solutions! Available soon on our online store!
The international director@of @guntersfables is in Colombia and she donated a number of our Fables to @hogares_bambi! Gracias Katherina Bach y Gunters Fables por esa belleza de fabulas que nos donaron y por el tiempo con nuestros ninos. pasaron felices. See the Hogares Bambi website for more information on the incredible work they are doing with children: http://www.hogaresbambi.org/ And it has only just begun! 💛

What do your children have in common with a trout?! They both love GLITTER! 😀 Sea trout are attracted to shiny insects like grasshoppers, beetles and crickets. These are (obviously) natural and a part of the ecosystem but what happens when glitter gets into the ocean and these fish eat it? Glitter is made up on tiny pieces of plastic and mixed with iron or aluminium, and even glass. These are such tiny pieces that you really cannot get rid of them. It sticks to everything, like a magnet, without the need for any glue. This tale is told by a grandfather sea trout who educates his grandson on the dangers of glitter bu using the old saying "not all that glitters is gold". This fable and lots more will be available in our online store soon. Stay close for more on that soon.

It's a yeast and bacteria party over here! These two organisms are responsible for so much yet are practically invisible. For example, a family of bacteria that lives in the air turns alcohol from wine, beer and cider into vinegar. This fermentation process needs air. That is why wine turns into vinegar when the bottle or the vat is left open! The bubbles in bread and beer are formed by CO2 produced by yeast that lives on sugars. Salt added to bread controls the proliferation of yeast. Of course, we have a Fable for this; "Salt or Sugar". Packed with facts, emotional intelligence and a useful table of academic knowledge, #GuntersFables shares the vision of a better world for you and your children.
A mediating tortoise!? Yes! Ready to be amazed? Listen up! "The lungs are the primary excretory organs for weight loss!" But, how? During weight loss, 84% of the fat that is lost turns into carbon dioxide and leaves the body through the lungs, whereas the remaining 16% becomes water! This is #GuntersFables and #ZERI in action! You can find this (and much more) in our Fable "Water and Stone", which is narrated by a tortoise and a finch ❤️
Our Fable "Talking Water" is filled with fascinating scientific facts! Let's see how many of these you know! Water is the most precious substance on Earth. A bottle of water is more expensive than a bottle of crude oil, even at the price of US$ 100 per barrel of oil. A cell made from an egg and a sperm consists of 98% water. That means that life in fact emerges in water! Water in the air is the main absorber of sunlight. The 13000 billion tons of water in the atmosphere remove about 70% of the radiation from the sun! #AndItHasOnlyJustBegun !
Ever wondered how a conversation between a Bear and a Fox would go? We have. In fact, most of our Fables characters are animals! We believe that Nature has the answer to many of the environmental challenges we face today. This excerpt from our Fable "The Bear and the Fox" covers the topic of Ethics Education: “Did you know that in some cultures around the world you are a thief when you have more than you need?” says the fox. “Nonsense,” growls the bear. “You steal when you take what does not belong to you.” “Oh no, there are many areas in the world where you would be accused of theft if you have more than you can ever eat yourself.” “I know you are clever, smart fox, and you are trying to get some of my tasty lunch.” What do you think is the definition of theft? We must all think about these differences and process the idea of sharing with the poor or less fortunate as a means to eliminate poverty and hunger.
You probably love coffee, yes? Well, there's someone out there that loves it even more than you! Shiitake mushrooms!!! The shiitake belongs to the fungi kingdom and therefore has a different metabolism; it actually derives energy from the breakdown of the caffeine and digests all food outside its’ body. Many people throw their coffee grounds into their earthworm farms or into the bin which gets sent to landfill. Earthworms do not digest coffee well and they get stressed! This is where the Shiitake comes and saves the day. The shiitake actually grow faster in caffeine! They then convert the coffee into food for others.
There is no reason for hunger in the world. Natural systems are extremely productive. That productivity is wasted when only 8% of the raw material of barley, for example, is being used in beer production. The other 92% could generate more than ten times the original amount of protein for human consumption. In our Fable "The Magic Hat" we tell the story of a resourceful magician who goes to a brewery and makes bread and grows mushrooms from the beer brewing's spent grain and then makes sausages with the mushrooms! This effectively converts waste streams into revenues. So, we say, "the magic hat of the future is having beer, bread, mushrooms, and sausages, all made from the same raw material." That is the magic of nature.
What can grow 10% in size in one hour, clone itself and acts as a carbon sink simply by eating phytoplankton? Introducing the most of amazing sea invertebrate you've probably never heard of... SALPS! They eat huge quantities of algae and phytoplankton and they are the fastest growing animals on Earth! To get around, thousands of them link together and can cover thousands of square kilometres. Salps teach us that by “doing their own thing together” functions better than everyone doing the same thing at different times! What else can we learn from these wonderous creatures? Our Fable "Making Chains" dissects this and much more.
Have you been waiting for the next book in any of these series? They’re hitting the shelves today! #series #lockwoodandco #fivekingdoms #agesofoz #shadowhouse #the5thwave #descendants #redqueen #treasurehunters #ifunny #theamateurs #peak #bravenewworld #schoolforgoodandevil #missperegrine
Maggots: useful friends or gross foes? Let's look at the facts. One kilogram of flies eggs can be converted into 300 kilograms of wonderful, protein-rich food within three days! Not even algae, mushrooms or bacteria can match that performance. These maggots have another amazing quality; their spit can heal wounds! It helps cells to grow while simultaneously cleaning the wound. Incredible! Maggots feed off food scraps and abattoir waste thereby eliminating unnecessary waste. Maggot protein can also be used in animal feed. Sounds like a highly productive resource to us!
ZERI: the foundation of Gunter's Fables. "Children have an innate ability to dream, though their dreams may seem unrealistic to parents and teachers. Yet what parents see as fantasy is very much a reality for the children." With this philosophy, ZERI created a series of fables that form the starting point of a fascinating learning journey through science. These fables are based on teaching five intelligence's to the readers: academic knowledge, emotional intelligence, artistic expression, Eco-literacy, and the capacity to implement. Learning science through stories is unorthodox, but it makes learning science both easy and enjoyable! The fables also present academic knowledge in a way that makes it relevant to daily life - it becomes a tool that children can use creatively when thinking about the challenges and opportunities of the world we live in. The four intelligence's - academic, emotional, artistic, ecological - can be combined so as to create a fifth intelligence: the capacity to implement change. "And it has only just begun!"
The Bear and the Fox 🦊 A conversation on sharing, beliefs, values and morals. The bear has caught a big fish and the fox tries to trick him into sharing it by stating that, in some religions (Islam), it is considered theft not to share or donate your excess with the poor. How do we define good and bad based on the cultural and religious context in which we live? In our Systems: Making the Connection guide it is summed up as "the way we judge what happens in the world is more a result of the way our moral and ethical framework has shaped our thinking and is guiding us to conclusions that are in line with our beliefs and values." Think about it: The actions that are needed to alleviate the suffering of the needy can be voluntary in one and obligatory for another, depending on the beliefs to which you adhere.
There's something about holidays that gets us calling each other "mum" and "dad"... please tell us we're not the only ones who do this?! 🙈 . We're exploring the mountains today by electric railway which is absolutely majestic and once we get to the top we should be able to see all five kingdoms which is going to be breathtaking and I'm pretty sure that's not possible from anywhere else in the UK, pretty epic if you think about it! . @visitisleofman #hosted #isleofman #fivekingdoms #unitedkingdom #peelcastle #ukbreak #uktravel #familytravel #travelwithkids #familytravel #mumanddad #coupletravel #couplesofinstagram #mrandmrs
W końcu przyszła prawdziwa jesień 🌧 . . Ostatnio ciągle pada, wieje i jest zimno. O ile na niskie temperatury pomogą czapka i rękawiczki, tak niestety deszcz będzie tą przeszkodą w czytaniu książek w drodze do domu. Jak wspomniałam, zabrałam się za kryminały Agaty Christie. O ile dwie książki wciągnęłam praktycznie od razu, tak następna idzie już trochę wolniej. Sądzę, że na dłuższą metę, nie dla mnie są historie o świetnych detektywach, którzy rozwiązują zagadki w swojej głowie, a na końcu wszystko naraz tłumaczą. Dlatego muszę się zająć jakąś historią kryminalną z wieloma zwrotami akcji i ciekawym prowadzeniem śledztwa. Ale póki co, wracam do starego przyjaciela Cole'a, który ratując przyjaciół, trafił do innego świata i wplątał się w nie małe kłopoty. #book #reading #crimestory #autumn #herkulespoirot #sherlockholmes #agatachritie #agathachristie #lights #brandonmull #fivekingdoms #skyraiders #oldfriend
In Nature, all species have a unique role to play. When one species is eliminated, the overall efficiency of the ecosystem is reduced and it can ultimately even collapse. • Our Fable, "Please Play With Me", brings our attention to the plight of the sea cucumber and how it has been over-harvested and therefore can not fulfil its function as the cleaner of the seabed. • The sea lion want's to play with the cucumber but the lone cucumber is too busy working because his brothers and sisters have all been harvested and taken to China! • We ask: Why doesn’t humanity notice it is fishing and harvesting beyond nature’s replacement capacity?
Homeschool field trip: Steele’s favorite author was doing a presentation and book signing today - so we loaded up the minivan and drove out to Simi Valley to meet him. Thank goodness the newly released Dragonwatch 2 arrived today! It was awesome to meet Brandon Mull! So cool to see a 14x NYT bestselling author so humble, kind and relatable. We highly recommend all of his books #Fablehaven #candyshopwars #dragonwatch #fivekingdoms #homeschool #gaggleofgagnons
Whales have developed an ingenious method of fishing. • From our Fable "Fishing without Nets", the whale explains the method to a baby dolphin, "We swirl around the water then release bubbles in a loop so that our favorite food - krill - is caught in this envelope of tiny air bubbles. Then, we can simply swim up with our mouths open and our tummy is full before we know it!” • One of the major benefits of this system is that the pregnant female fish are too heavy for the air bubbles and sink down therefore avoiding being eaten and ensuring the species (and the whales food source) is maintained. • Imagine how much plastic-based fishing nets we could eliminate from our oceans if we replicated the whales' techniques? "... And it has only just begun!" Video via the WWF.
The king of Hearts! • Whale facts: - Each heartbeat if a whale pumps 1000 liters of blood! - a single breath of a whale can inflate 2000 balloons! - their heart measures two meters! • Our fable “the king of hearts” contains all these facts plus looking at how humans could replicate whale technology for more earth friendly solutions such a bio-batteries! • #GuntersFables

🍊 Citrus peel contains the ingredients for cleaning products, perfumes, insecticides and even solvents for 3D printing, but it is usually thrown away! Oranges are the most cultivated fruit trees on Earth. • They keep fresh for up to 12 weeks after harvest and therefore were the preferred fruit on long voyages in days gone by. • Our Fable "Swinging Together" discusses many wonderful ways to use what is otherwise considered "waste" and produce biodegradable and effective products which also increase revenue and job opportunities 😎
💡Fireflies; Nature's light miracles! They create light through luminescence by mixing chemicals with oxygen! • Humans can learn a thing or two from the fireflies methods. We still use fossil fuels and oils to generate our light! • Scientists still don't know exactly how fireflies turn their lights on and off... If we do not understand that, what do we really know about Nature?

Gold everywhere! • This Fable asks us to look at the throwaway culture of broken electronics. We currently burn masses of cellphones, batteries and TV’s which releases toxins into the earth and air. • We have a solution! Mine waste dumps for rare earth minerals! Did you know? There is more gold and platinum in a ton of old cellphones than in a ton of ore excavated from a mine? Maybe there is a future in mining after all... • #GuntersFables

Happening right now! Gunter giving a lecture about our fable “holding hands” which talks about the sea otters and how they float together, holding hands. • This is completely unique in the animal kingdom! These sea mammals are also very hygienic and clean their face after a meal! • “And it has only just begun.”

⭐⭐⭐🌠 Five KingdomS Karangan Brandon Mull @writerbrandon ini terdiri dari 5 Buku. 1.Sky Raider 2.Rouge Knight 3.Crystal Keepers 4.Deat Weavers 5.Time Jumper Pada malam Halloween, Cole Randolph dan kawan-kawannya mendatangi sebuah rumah hantu di Wilson Street. Mereka berniat ke rumah angker tersebut karena katanya menawarkan sensasi yang lebih menyeramkan. Mereka merasa melakukan trick or treat (meminta permen) di malam Halloween hanya untuk anak-anak dan merasa sudah cukup besar untuk melakukan hal tersebut (padahal umur mereka sekitar 12 tahun). Namun kunjungan yang awalnya hanya untuk bersenang-senang itu berubah menjadi bencana ketika kawan-kawan Cole diculik sekelompok orang yang misterius dan dibawa ke sebuah tempat yang asing. Tanpa pikir panjang, Cole yang secara tak sengaja berhasil sembunyi, mengejar para penculik yang membawa teman-temannya, dan terdampar di sebuah tempat asing yang disebut Dunia Perbatasan. Dunia Perbatasan berada di antara alam sadar dan alam mimpi, antara kenyataan dan imajinasi, hidup dan mati. Cole datang ke dunia perbatasan tanpa tahu sedikit pun tentang dunia tersebut. Tujuannya hanya menyelamatkan teman-temannya dan pulang ke rumah. Alih-alih membebaskan teman-temannya yang diculik untuk dijadikan budak, Cole justru tertangkap juga dan dijadikan budak.
