Now, Kirsty could never be described as a lover of football but she does like a bit of the World Cup. There’s something strangely comforting about it, the global village and all that, the unifying power of competitive sport… Or maybe she’s been drinking too much Coca-Cola. Anyway, it’s been an enjoyable experience, the bits she’s seen, and she’s even starting to like that weird buzzy noise.
Crows probably aren’t very good at football, their legs are too spindly. But expectations in the Nest are high, very high. We want the best fiction, the best illustrations, the best the best the best. And, unlike a certain team, we promise to deliver. So if you’ve got a brilliant novel for 8-12 year olds, let us take it under our wing. The Crow shoots, the Crow scores!
