Our new children’s storybook Herdy Junior and the Big Old Boulder launched at Waterstones in Kendal on 18 February. Patricia Hovey MBE had the kids spellbound as she read the book, and there was fierce concentration during the colouring competition.

Congratulations go to the winner Harry (age 7) (we love the addition of cherries on the tree and a stingray in the tarn!), and to runners up Pip and Reanna (both 6). All of the fantastic entries are now brightening up the herdy office.

We’ll be having another reading and competition at Carlisle Waterstones on 10 March. Come along if you’re nearby.
