Reeve & McIntyre Big Up Bookshops Tour! 09/10/21
Join us to celebrate Bookshop Day with a morning of readings, signings and shenanigans, as the Reeve & McIntyre Big Up Bookshops Tour concludes in our little shop.
They'll be reading from the latest in their Roly Poly Flying Pony series, Kevin vs The Unicorns; a fun-filled crime caper for 4-8 year olds.
Event Date: Saturday 9th October 2021
Time: 10am, 10:45am, 11:30am
Each session will last for 30 minutes.
The ticket price is redeemable against the purchase of any book from the Roly Poly Flying Pony series.
Parents, due to the limited space in our shop and the continued need for a degree of social distancing, it would be very helpful if you could wait outside during the sessions. Thank you for your understanding.
About the book
Max and his best friend Kevin, the only roly-poly flying pony in Bumbleford, decide to enter the Magical Pony Club Steeplechase. Kevin is not particularly keen, as the other participants are all unicorns, and everybody knows that unicorns are quite snobby. But biscuits are promised, and Kevin wants to make Max proud. As the competition heats up, our inseparable duo uncovers a conspiracy to steal the precious Periwinkle Cup. Max and Kevin will have to intervene to stop the thieves and retrieve the stolen trophy.
About the authors
Illustrator and writer Sarah McIntyre is easy to spot in her pointy glasses and hats. Sometimes she writes and draws picture books and comics herself, sometimes she illustrates books for other people, including Giles Andreae, Alan MacDonald, Gillian Rogerson, Anne Cottringer and Claire Freedman. When she makes books with Philip Reeve, they both brainstorm the story ideas together, then Philip writes them and Sarah illustrates them. But occasionally they swap roles for a bit. And they love dressing up.
Author and Illustrator Philip Reeve began writing stories in his bedroom aged just five. It took a little while for the first one to be published but, when it was, Mortal Engines became a smash and won the Nestlé Smarties Book Prize and Blue Peter Book Award. Since then, Philip has provided cartoons and jokes for many books, including Horrible Histories, won the Carnegie Medal for his novel Here Lies Arthur and co-created a world of fantastic young fiction with illustrator Sarah McIntyre.
