Alan Garner: The Owl Service

The Owl Service cover

She wants to be flowers, but you make her owls. You must not complain, then, if she goes hunting.
Alan Garner, The Owl Service

Another book cover mock-up, using a crop of my drawing from last year. If I ever read this, I don’t remember it. I don’t remember watching the TV adaptation either, as it was on ITV and I was curiously loyal to BBC kids TV back then. The BBC was like going to a proper shop, whereas ITV was a bit like a stall at the back of a market, selling cheap knock-offs and stuff stolen from people’s sheds. Very little has happened down the years to dissuade me from that opinion.
