Max longs for a pet. Yet a tower block flat with busy parents isn’t an ideal situation.

What will Max make of Kevin, whom he discovers on his balcony on a stormy night? This roly-poly flying pony has been buffeted all the way from the Outermost West! How can Kevin care for him? What will Daisy and Max’s’s Mum and Dad make of the custard cream fancying pony? How might Max and Kevin help Bumbleford cope through the rising floodwater?

‘The Legend of Kevin‘ is a super story. Max and Kevin’s friendship is so enjoyable. The story line is ingenious and crafty! Additional characters like the sea monkeys and Mr Mould the Headteacher increase the fun. We are so pleased to include a Reeve & McIntyre title on our Bookwagon shelves. ‘The Legend of Kevin‘ has been worth the wait!


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. From his nest  in the wild, wet hills of Outermost West to Bumbleford is a huge distance! Will 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…… Custard creams are this flying pony’s favourite biscuit!

    It is about a flying pony Kevin. Kevin’s favourite foods are grass,apples and biscuits. Only not in that order. He likes biscuits best. My favourite part of the book was at the very end when Kevin couldn’t tell all of it to Max so he just said custard creams. Kevin’s other favourite biscuits are Bourbons and pink wafers. The sea monkeys in the book were very very scary and there was a huge flood.
