The Illustrated Child
A picture paints a thousand lies...

'Evocative and enchanting - a future classic and a star in the making' Veronica Henry, Sunday Times bestselling author

'This treasure of a debut takes up the palette of emotions and paints with all the colours. Beautiful' Nydia Hetherington

NOW AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER!

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 a treasure hunt leading to a glittering prize.

But as time passes, Romilly's father becomes increasingly suspicious of everything around him, until, before her eyes, he begins to disappear altogether.

In her increasingly isolated world, Romilly turns to the secrets her father has hidden in his illustrated books, realising that there is something far darker and more devastating locked within the pages...

The truth.

The Illustrated Child is the unforgettable, beguiling debut from Polly Crosby.
