Common or Garden Cows
It's a true story! What would you do if you found a cow in your front garden? Find out how people coped when the cows came to town! Woodford-born artist Karen Humpage recalls the days when cows wandered around the suburban streets adjoining Epping Forest. See how their antics caused no end of consternation for homeowners and shopkeepers, frustration for motorists, wonderment and fun for children, and something to bark at for dogs. With the help of local peoples' recollections, Karen's gently humorous writing paints pictures of cow/human interactions, upsets to the suburban idyll and the occasional far-fetched flight of fancy.
All accompanied by Karen's gloriously colourful paintings complementing the text. Not just a book for the people of Epping Forest, this book will resonate with anyone who lives near to an area of common land where cattle are grazed.
