  • Kevin Price a children author . Kevin will be here with his  best selling book Beauty Contest at the Zoo as well as  4 other children’s books which he has written. Kevin will be promoting his books and they will be here for you to purchase a signed copy.

Kevin Price hasn’t always been a children’s author. In fact, until very recently he was the Managing Director of a company that supplies construction materials, having spent his working life in the construction industry. However, after the loss of his much-loved daughter Maisie, he found that writing poetry helped him to express his grief. One day it was suggested that he should have a go at writing a children’s story. Having spent a week or two thinking about this, Kevin sat down and wrote his first rhyming story, The Beauty Contest at the Zoo. This would become a book which features Maisie as one of the central characters and provides a lasting celebration of her short life.*
