Local author Christina Hatton-Fearnley is keeping the adventures of Kevin the Pack Goat going with the launch of her new book 'Kevin the Pack Goat Friendship Fumble.' The book will be released at Lil' Hoots Children Boutique from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Saturday.
Kevin the Pack Goat was released in 2021, and Hatton-Fearnley dreamed of having another story with Kevin in it. To get some ideas for what to do next with Kevin she would visit schools, daycares, and libraries.
"A very common question I would ask is now that we know Kevin and the farmer, what adventure should the two of them go on next? Some kids would say they should go to Disneyland or they should go to space or they should go to McDonald's. I was just kind of dreaming of stories and kind of things that happened on our farm and things that happened in my life and kind of inspired the book to be what it is."
There are some new characters in this book that were not in the first one, Hatton-Fearnley says, but that is a secret until her book release on Saturday. Hatton-Fearnley is excited about the launch of this new book as the last three books that she has written have been received really well.
"My first book 'The Lost Photograph' was my COVID baby and I was really just learning about publishing and about picking an editor that I gel really well with. I was also just understanding what the type of books that I like to write is, how it looks, front page, back page, you know all the things in between, and then 'Kevin the Pack Goat' came out and I really started to get down this whole writer thing."
This Saturday Hatton-Fearnley will be reading her book at the book launch, there will also be a bouncy castle and candy for all kids to enjoy. Lil' Hoots Children Boutique will have 'Kevin the Pack Goat Friendship Bumble' for sale along with Hatton-Fearnley's other notable books.
Main Street Market in Strathmore carries her works as well. You can also visit Hatton-Fearnley's website at authorchristinahatto or reach our to any of her Facebook pages.
