By: Louise Verity
In a disused railway tunnel lives Pollyhester, dressmaker to the stars. Celebrities dream of Pollyhester’s designs, teased out of ancient recycled fabrics and her wonderous imagination. But when Fashion Dictators change the fashion, celebrity Iverna makes extraordinary demands on poor Pollyhester. She summons her loyal helpers, who include a fallen dancing angel, a lovesick Viking motorcycle courier and a host of sinister spiders, to save the day.
Beautifully illustrated, and simply told, this enchanting tale will captivate both young and old.
‘The illustrations are what make Pollyhester stand out. Louise Verity is a creator and imaginator par excellence. The story is an eccentrically delicious blend of Louise’s personal experience with a fictionalised story into the really true landscape of fashion, celebrity and body image. I will treasure my signed copy as I know that this book is one of a kind.’ – Mrs Ann K. Scott
‘An original and charming book – wonderful illustrations that really are fun and different. Perfect to give as a present and one which both the child and the parent will enjoy!’ – N.Martin.
