Chris Riddell's Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse is the beautifully illustrated winner of the Costa Children's Book Award. Full of adventure and dark humour, it's perfect for all young Goths!
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, the three children 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!
Continue this deliciously dark series with Goth Girl and the Fete Worse Than Death and Goth Girl and the Wuthering Fright.

In Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse we meet Ada Goth, the only child of Lord Goth. The two live together in the enormous Ghastly-Gorm Hall, where Ada begins to unravel a dastardly plot involving a ghostly mouse called Ishmael.
Everyone appears to have forgotten Ada‰۪s birthday in Goth Girl and the Fete Worse Than Death, and there are even more strange goings-on in Goth Girl and the Wuthering Fright: mysterious footprints, howls in the night and some suspiciously chewed shoes. In book four, Goth Girl and the Sinister Symphony, Lord Goth is throwing a music festival, but Ada must make sure everything goes to plan.
