portrait challege: hilda rix nicholas

Here's my riff on today's StudioTeaBreak #PortraitChallenge, Australian artist Hilda Rix Nicholas's 1917 self portrait. (See her original version here.)

reeve & mcintyre investigate

Is there any truth behind the legend of the Roly Poly Flying Pony? Reeve & McIntyre Investigate - and meet an eyewitness with a chilling tale to tell!

Are you anywhere near London next Saturday? We're doing two events! A big morning party at Daunt Books Marylebone (details here - free, but you need to book!) and a smaller signing at Muswell Hill Children's Bookshop (free, details here!) All ages welcome: bring all the kids, or you don't even need to have a child in tow if you just like reading our books yourself. :)

As ever, keep an eye on my Events page to discover if I'm doing any events in your area!

islay book festival 2019

Last week Reeve & McIntyre were in the Hebrides for Islay Book Festival!

...In fact, all the Reeve family and most of the McIntyres were there, too! Highlights include my dad getting his beloved kippers for breakfast, and Glasgow Auntie giving our guesthouse hens a cuddle.

roly-poly publication day!

Today's our official Roly-Poly Publication Day! You can find the second book in our series, Kevin's Great Escape, at all good UK bookshops, and the paperback version of the first book, The Legend of Kevin, also comes out today!

Here are some glimpses of other people's crafted Kevins, including this one on my studio shelf, by Andrea Stewart:

And of course, the big plushie Kevin who's been travelling with us, created by Chloe Applin! (Photo tweeted today by @Gardners)

Next Saturday is a big London Reeve & McIntyre day - come join us if you're anywhere nearby! We'll be doing a big family event at 10am at Daunt Books Marylebone; it's free, but you need to book tickets here.

And we'll be doing a slightly smaller signing session at Muswell Hill Children's Bookshop at 2:30, but hopefully that will involve some drawing, too! (Details on their website.)

big box of birthday bliss

Two great things that happened on my birthday: a big box of beautiful books from India arrived, from Tara Books (based in Chennai), and I shot a video unpacking them here:

And the other thing was that The Legend of Kevin got shortlisted for the Lollies Awards!

It's a prize for funny books (Lollies - Laugh Out Loud) and if you could help your kids vote for The Legend of Kevin, that would be amazing! Adults can help children vote on the website, or children can vote directly through the PopJam app.
