A beautiful fresh cover for the paperback edition of Chris Riddell’s Costa Award-winning Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse. Illustrated in black and white thoughout, full of adventure and dark humour, it is perfect for children aged 8 to 11!

Ada Goth is the only child of Lord Goth. The two live together in the enormous Ghastly-Gorm Hall. Lord Goth believes that children should be heard and not seen, so Ada has to wear large clumpy boots so that he can always hear her coming. This makes it hard for her to make friends and, if she’s honest, she’s rather lonely.

Then one day William and Emily Cabbage come to stay at the house and, together with a ghostly mouse called Ishmael, the three children begin to unravel a dastardly plot that Maltravers, the mysterious indoor gamekeeper, is hatching. Ada and her friends must work together to foil Maltravers before it’s too late!

Continue this deliciously dark series with Goth Girl and the Fete Worse Than Death, Goth Girl and the Wuthering Fright and Goth Girl and the Sinister Symphony.
