The Legend of Kevin
Roly-Poly Flying Pony
Philip Reeve & Sarah McIntyre
The Legend of Kevin, Roly-Poly Flying Pony begins with Kevin’s windblown journey to a place where ordinary people live. It seems that a journey from his nest in the wild, wet hills of Outermost West to Bumbleford is a huge distance! Yet, could Kevin’s wings make a difference? Can he find a place of safety? Somewhere above the increasing flood waters? Maybe somewhere that has custard creams…… After all, custard creams are this flying pony’s favourite biscuit! Thereafter, is it possible that this place might include a Max and a Daisy? It seems that Max might be destined to be the friend for whom Kevin has been looking. Thereafter, it seems that they might be able to help as Bumbleford is flooded.
The Legend of Kevin is the first title in a really engaging, witty, beautifully written and drawn series. Further titles include Kevin’s Great Escape and Kevin and the Biscuit Bandit. Bookwagon recommends this title and series highly to chapter book readers of less experience.
