The Life and Time of Lonny Quicke with Kirsty Applebaum!
What if you could save lives? What if, just with the touch of your hand, you could stop an animal, or even a person, dying? You’d do it, wouldn’t you?
The Life and Time of Lonny Quicke is the captivating new middle-grade novel by Kirsty Applebaum, author of The Middler and TrooFriend. Lonny is a lifeling. He has the power to heal any living creature and bring it back from the dead. But he pays a price for this gift – by lengthening the creature’s life, he shortens his own. So, Lonny has to be careful, stay hidden in the forest. Because if people knew what he could do, Lonny would be left with no life at all…
“A modern day fairytale with a unique voice and fantastic folkloric premise.”
– Peter Bunzl, author of Cogheart

You can order these brilliant packs until 21 April (but they may sell out before this date).
Orders are strictly for one pack per library only. If you are ordering more than one pack (to disperse to other libraries in your region) you need to also email Kimberley.Sheehan@readingagency.org.uk to notify her of the individual library names that the packs will be used at. Alternatively, you can do individual orders for each library in the shop.
Please note, if you order a Lonny Quicke pack you are agreeing to use the materials within your library and to send photos of your display and feedback of any events to Kimberley Sheehan by 4 June. We’d love to see photos using @nosycrow on social media too.
The publisher will be dispatching your resources. They will receive a dispatch list with your contact name and work address (which you give) for delivery. They will only deliver the pack requested and the dispatch list will then be deleted after the packs have been sent.
