We are delighted to have the very talented and extremely creative Kris Miners at the farm for a book signing event for his new children’s book ‘Hornbeam Hollow’. Copies will be available to purchase in our farm shop for £6.99.
About the book:
Each year, when the Halloween season falls upon Hornbeam Hollow, Pygmy and Conker become excited for their spooky adventures – especially the annual `pumpkin hunt’ with Grandad Shrew! This year, Pygmy, Conker and Grandad Shrew are looking for the largest pumpkin they can carry to Pygmy’s home for their Halloween party. Join them on their journey as they venture through the dark pathways and twisting brambles looking for the perfect pumpkin and discovering a new and magical friend along the way.
Hornbeam Hollow is fully illustrated by hand.
About the author:
Kris lives in Chelmsford and has a deep interest in the natural world – something that he has studied since a very early age. He holds qualifications in many outdoor interests, including a degree in environmental and nature-based studies.
It is this interest in our natural world that first sparked Kris’s curiosity in drawing and painting the wildlife that can be found around us, and through his own unique whimsical style, his paintings and drawings have become a firm favorite of both children and adults alike.
Kris specialises in seasonal art, focusing on holidays such as Halloween and Christmas and chooses a whimsical and relaxed style that lends itself to children’s books and greetings cards.
