    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 they and Ada 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!

    A deliciously dark new offering from the award-winning author-illustrator Chris Riddell and we have 10 signed copies to give away! Just answer the simple question below by 23rd September to be in with a chance to win.

      Chris Riddell is one of my favourite illustrators, ever since I read "Something Else". This book will fit perfectly with my otteline collection books from him. A singed copy would be awesome. But I know I love this book and will by it nonetheless.
