4.0 out of 5 stars A funny book which all ages should enjoy, 27 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse (Hardcover)
No matter what your age, there is a lot to delight readers with GOTH GIRL AND THE GHOST OF A MOUSE. Firstly, what attracted me was the design of the book; the pages are edged with a bright purple and the endpapers are decorated with silver skulls. With purple and silver on the cover, this is a book which certainly manages to grab your attention in the bookstore. And, once you start reading it, you'll be pleased to find that it manages to hold your attention as a reader.
The story follows Ada Goth; a young girl who lives with her father, Lord Goth. As an only child, she can find living in Gormly Ghast Hall lonely sometimes, so when she is visited by the ghost of a mouse, she is happy to have someone she can talk to. As she begins to explore the house where she lives, she begins to think that there is something going on there that is not all it seems to be.

This short story is one of the strangest I have read for a while; the characters and goings-on are fantastically imagined. Illustrated throughout by Riddell himself, you are able to see his great ideas just as he imagined them. For young readers there is plenty to keep them entertained. For slightly older readers there are many funny references to the golden age of Gothic literature.

A brilliant book. I hope Goth Girl has more adventures.
