The Heeding by Rob Cowen Now In Paperback

The Dazzling Paperback Copy of The Heeding

One of my favourite books of last year is getting a much deserved paperback publication on Thursday (31/03/2022). The Heeding by Rob Cowen and illustrated by Nick Hayes was borne out of the weird Covid timewarp of 2020 and 2021 providing an anchoring point for some of the world passing by around us. In original poetry with amazing illustrations it helps us to look at the world around us and to heed what is going on. To paraphrase Sherlock Holmes – To not just look but to observe.

You can reread my original review of The Heeding here. It’s original publication also coincided with the month of AudioMo, and I read an extract from the book, part of the poem “The Allotment” as one of my submissions:

    I loved Rob’s first book, Common Ground and would love to read The Heeding.

    Thank you!

    1. Thanks Rachel, you’re in the draw. I have edited your comment to remove your email address from the body of the comment, but I still have a note of it in the comment form.

  2. The Covid Years have been strange — nothing happened and, on a personal level, too much happened. It has definitely been a time for slowing down and heeding. I’ve read several of the book you’ve recommended. I’d love to read this one too.
