Praise for The Book of Hidden Wonders: 'Evocative and enchanting - a future classic and a star in the making' Veronica Henry, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Beach Hut 'Written in fine, delicate prose, this treasure of a debut takes up the palette of emotions and paints with all the colours. Beautiful' Nydia Hetherington, debut author of A Girl Made of Air 'Exquisitely written, stunning, totally unique. Everyone needs to read this' Jessica Ryn, debut author of The Extraordinary Hope of Dawn Brightside 'A magical tale, beautifully written, evocative and mysterious, and stitched through with a dark thread that I wasn't expecting. What a wonderful book' Anita Frank, debut author of The Lost Ones 'A beautifully written tale that evokes dreams and imagination' Daily Record 'An extraordinary debut... beautiful, dark, haunting and unforgettable. It is a most wonderfully tender nightmare, a haunted-house childhood where the landscape gets ever stranger, a deeply affecting portrait of the climb towards adulthood. Nostalgic, familiar and yet utterly strange. I loved it' Edward Carey, author of Little and The Iremonger Trilogy 'Polly Crosby makes sensory magic, conjuring images of such vividness that I'll remember them always. I'll remember Romilly and her father too: I loved them deeply, and they filled and broke my heart' Clare Beams, author of The Illness Lesson 'Polly Crosby's magical debut ... is a story about daughters and fathers, but it's more than that: it's a treatise on how to find hope in a universe rife with heartbreak and loss. May it light some of your darkest hours the way it has mine' Andrew David MacDonald, author of When We Were Vikings
