Synopsis

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!

Customer Reviews

Beautifully illustrated and presented, this is the type of book that gives the e-reader a run for its money and shows there's no substitute for print books. To be enjoyed by all ages; I especially liked the references to Gothic novels and various cultural references like Disney films which reminded me of Stella Gibbons's satire of Gothic novels in Cold Comfort Farm.
