The team behind Kirkcowan’s publishing company Curly Tale Books will be launching their new title at Wigtown’s Spring Festival on Sunday.

Following on from the success of Big Bill the Beltie Bull, writer Jayne Baldwin and illustrator Shalla Gray have created Big Bill’s Beltie Bairns a charming picture book designed for pre and early school age children.

In the new story we meet Belted Galloways Bertie and Buntie of Benyellary Farm. As spring has arrived the two young calves head out to the fields for the first time and discover several surprises. Will they be friendly or frightening? Find out with a fun event filled with readings and activities on Sunday at the Box of Frogs Bookshop at 12.30pm.
