One day a nasty lurgy comes to town. Locksie, a little girl, decides to plant some vegetable seeds. How will her vegetables – Tricky Tomato, Rigorous Radish, Caring Carrot and Masterful Mangetout  - use their special powers to stop the spread of the lurgy?


"An enjoyable read with fantastic illustrations - Locksie and The Lurgy enables children to learn about coronavirus. I loved it and I am sure children near and far will love it too!"
