Hidden in the pages of a book is a secret story...
'Evocative and enchanting – a future classic and a star in the making' Veronica Henry, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Beach Hut
Let the treasure hunt begin.
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 Book of Hidden Wonders is the unforgettable, beguiling debut from Polly Crosby.
