You may remember her as ‘Kate’, the runaway fugitive, torn between the love of two men in the insanely addictive television series, “Lost,” but did you know that her FIRST passion is writing?

Evangeline Lilly’s first book is a kid’s book called “The Squickerwonker” which is based off a poem she wrote back in 1994 when she was only 14 years old. In the book we meet Selma of the Rin-Run Royals, a clever little girl who is spoiled to the core. One day Selma stumbles upon a band of colourful marionettes, and gets more than she bargained for. The remarkable Squickerwonkers of the fabulous Squickershow are about to teach Selma that she’ll not always get her way.
The book is now being offered in a wonderful limited edition by Titan Books. Beautifully illustrated by Johnny Fraser-Allen, a senior sculptor and conceptual designer at WETA Workshop. This edition will be limited to only 500 copies worldwide and contains the following:
