On Monday, Reeve & McIntyre showed up in Flanders to join our Dutch-language publishers at Boekenbeurs
, Antwerp's Book Fair. We were thrilled how excited the team at Ballon Media
were about our Roly-Poly Flying Pony! Check out that big wooden Kevin!
In that photo you can spot me, Philip
, translator of the Kevin books Saskia Martens
, publisher Philippe Nuyts
, publicity's Jente Lambrechts
and our editor Gaëlle Cooreman
. And below, you can see the lovely shiny books - Het Verhaal van Kevin
and Kevin op de Vlucht
- and one of the team modelling the Kevin shirt!
They even had these cool little biscuit boxes for display, Philip and I were well chuffed. Interestingly, several people came up and mentioned how glad they were to come across the book's message of body positivity - Kevin's a very roly-poly pony, but he's happy and great at flying - so that was good to hear.
Here's the books' translator Saskia Martens
, who came along to the fair with her family. It was great to meet her; so much of the success of the book depends on her writing skills! ( Collapse )
