Riddell’s outstanding black and white illustrations have a wonderfully nostalgic feel and bring to life this funny and yet often moving tale. And with the now trademark teeny weeny surprise tucked into the back of the book, some clever literary illusions and the fearless, feisty Ada taking starring role, this is reading heaven for all young Goths. (The Daily Mail)
In both words and pictures Chris Riddell creates an amazing cast of characters and the most original escapades in which they are all entangled. (LoveReading4Kids)
seeded with elegantly illustrated, punning allusions to everything from canonical literature (Jane Ear) to pop heroines (Tailor Extremely Swift). Handsomely turned out as ever, this silver-foiled hardback feels instantly welcoming and accessible. (Guardian)
Chris' blend of amazing illustrations, darkly gothic humour and good old fashioned sense of adventure result in a book as exciting and fresh as the first. (BookTrust)
a real treat (The Week Junior)

Goth Girl And The Sinister Symphony by Chris Riddell is one of the most beautifully produced books of the year. (Express)
Full of clever satire, stunning illustrations and a pun-filled plot, this fourth Goth Girl book is a real treat. (WRD Magazine)
The illustrations are just exceptional and, along with the footnotes, miniature book at the back and overall design, they just add to a stunning product. And although this can be read as a standalone book, anyone reading Goth Girl for the first time is likely to quickly seek out the rest of the series. A treat for adults and children alike! (Readingzone)
Chris Riddell is a marvel ― his exquisite line drawings are extraordinarily delicate and idiosyncratic. Goth Girl and the Sinister Symphony like others involving his heroine Ada Goth, features a series of merciless puns, in this case on the life and works of Lord Byron (Ada’s dad writes about Don Jumpy, an amorous mouse). There’s something here for the knowing adult reader as well as the child. Genius. (The Evening Standard)
More from Ada and her friends at Ghastly-Gorm Hall in the fourth book in the Goth Girl series, sequel to Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse, Goth Girl and the Fete Worse Than Death and Goth Girl and the Wuthering FrightSee all Product description
