The K Festival

Originally uploaded by Jagosilver.

Went to the K Festival on Saturday night, like a kind of mini Glastonbury in a field outside Polzeath, Cornwall. Had a great time, saw The Magic Numbers, who were brilliant and the Happy Mondays, who were OK...

Torrential rain as the festival was ending around midnight, our small tent was getting soggier by the second. In the end we bailed out and walked back to sleep in the car...drove home (about 15mins) at 5am the next morning...looking forward to next year.

Myron's Magic Cow has been selected as one of The Booksellers highlights. This means that in the Bookseller Children's Buyers Guide where hundreds and hundreds of new children's titles are listed, Myron has been picked out and highlighted.

Hope this will bode well for sales of the book.

Visit the authors website here, or see mine for more illustrations from the book

Some very curious cows, they looked at us with utter astonishment (wondering how we were walking on two legs?)and then followed us down the field....
