    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.

      YAY! The first books my daughter truly enjoyed reading herself were the Ottoline series. She's been busting for something new from Mr Riddell for ages. She is dancing around the house in glee having shown her the Goth Girl cover. She might pop if it was signed!
