Cyril Cowell

Book for an event

Adam the Gardener was drawn by Cyril Cowell, a much loved illustrator of the 1940s and 1950s who specialised in drawing animals and the natural world, especially for children's books (including Enid Blyton). It was written by Morley Adams, a journalist who was also credited with popularising the crossword in Britain. Alys Fowler is a presenter on Gardeners' World, has her own series, The Edible Garden, and has written a book of the same name.
