What would you do if you found a cow in your front garden?
Find out how people coped when the cows came to town!
Woodford-born artist Karen Humpage recalls the days when cows wandered around the suburban streets adjoining Epping Forest.
See how the cows munched their way through people’s gardens!
Find out how they brought traffic to a standstill!
Look at what they left behind on the pavement!
See how their antics caused no end of consternation for homeowners and shopkeepers, frustration for motorists, wonderment and fun for children, and something to bark at for dogs. With the help of local peoples’ recollections, Karen’s gently humorous writing paints pictures of cow/human interactions, upsets to the suburban idyll and the occasional far-fetched flight of fancy. All accompanied by Karen’s gloriously colourful paintings complementing the text.
Not just a book for the people of Epping Forest, this book will resonate with anyone who lives near to an area of common land where cattle are grazed.
Adults and children alike will enjoy this book.

I absolutely love this book! Brought back some great memories of my childhood home. My parents love it too. Great memories of cows eating all their roses!
Fab memories of the cows which used to meander from garden to garden around Wanstead Flats along with Karen's humorous works of art. What's not to like. Arrived quickly and was as good as I thought it was going to be.
Lovely postcodes! Really reminds me of the home where I grew up and where my parents still live. Thank you x
Thank you, I love it! Cows and Iron Maiden, simply perfect. :)
