The Tales of Herman and Spice Launch
Friday 06 July 2012
The Tales of Herman and Spice is a volume of three entertaining and exciting children’s books written and illustrated by Letchworth author Richard Wallace. Herman and Spice are endearing characters that children from as young as four to as old as 80 will enjoy.These two cheeky chaps, one as round as a pudding bowl, the other pot-bellied, have plenty of adventures that are brought to life with charming illustrations on every page. In one tale, Herman & Spice go Horse Riding, they set off on horseback only to discover halfway through the trip that one of the horses is actually a very hungry lion that needs feeding – urgently! In another adventure, The Problem of PC Pudding, they visit the policeman’s house to discover him immobile from eating too many cakes! They resolve this problem by putting a wheel on the policeman’s tummy and pushing him around like a wheelbarrow! Whether in the air on a vintage bi-plane or on the back of a lion, these two find themselves in amusing situations that readers of any age will take pleasure in.
