First News - - YOUR NEWS - By Perry Harper

I WAS in­vited to the launch of The Leg­end Of Kevin, the brand new se­ries by award-win­ning duo Philip Reeve and Sarah McIn­tyre.

The mo­ment I stepped in, I had a sugar rush al­ready. There were bis­cuits of all kinds. There were golf clubs, flamingo ones, cakes, sweets – ev­ery bis­cuit you could imag­ine!

The Leg­end Of Kevin is a bril­liant book. It is full of laugh­ter, joy, and I’m sure that you’ll like the cheeky sea mon­keys. You might not know who Kevin is, so I’ll give you a lit­tle hint about the story, and how he and Max meet.

Kevin is a fat fly­ing pony, and Max is a lit­tle boy with an older sis­ter called Daisy (but she prefers the name Elvira) and a mum and dad. When Kevin is blown away from the wild wet hills of the Outer­most West, he bumps onto Max’s bal­cony. Now what will those crazy two do to­gether?

Every­one who was at the launch was lovely and very friendly. The au­thor and il­lus­tra­tor read us a sec­tion from The Leg­end Of Kevin, and then it was on to bis­cuit dec­o­rat­ing.

I got a bit too car­ried away with the ic­ing, but it was fun any­way! My favourite bit was def­i­nitely the bis­cuits – es­pe­cially lov­ing them in my tummy af­ter.
