AUD $29.99

From a unique and brilliant imagination comes the story of Special Kev and his eleventy million cousins. All great children's literature has some element of danger and mischief, and this new story takes you right to the heart of what it is to be a child.

On the day I was born

Mum planted red roses and rolled out the red carpet.

She called me Special Kev.

I am the only one of all my eleventy million cousins

who has curly hair, red hair and freckles.

Anyway that thing that happened with Nicky Bathgate,

well, it wasn't my fault.

Chris McKimmie's work cuts straight to the heart of childhood. A book for the whole family to enjoy.
