HQ is delighted to offer libraries a mixed digital & print POS pack to celebrate the publication of Polly Crosby's 'extraordinary debut' (Edward Carey), The Illustrated Child.
'Evocative and enchanting – a future classic' Veronica Henry, bestselling author
‘A bewitching read' Woman & Home
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 mixed digital & print POS pack will include:
- Social media pack, including book jacket and static reader review shareables and sizzle reel animation
- Audiogram extract of the first chapter
- A link to a blog about Polly’s painting, featuring her videos, hosted on the HQ website
