Everyone needs to read this' Jessica Ryn 'Magical, beautifully written, evocative, and mysterious, stitched through with a dark thread I wasn't expecting - a wonderful book' Anita Frank Romilly lives in a ramshackle house with her eccentric artist father and her cat, Monty. She knows little about her past - but she knows that she is loved. When her father finds fame with a series of children's books starring her as the main character, everything changes: exotic foods appear on the table, her father appears on TV, and strangers appear at their door, convinced the books contain clues leading to a precious prize. But as time passes, Romilly's father becomes increasingly suspicious of the outside world until, before her eyes, he begins to disappear altogether. With no-one else to help, Romilly turns to the secrets her father has hidden in his illustrated books - realising that his treasure hunt doesn't lead to gold, but to something far more precious... The truth. The Illustrated Child is the unforgettable, beguiling debut from Polly Crosby. AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER NOW!
