Goth Girl and the Wuthering Fright

Publisher: Macmillan Children’s Books


The intimidatingly aristocratic Lord Goth invites writers and their pooches for a literary dog show at Ghastly-Gorm Hall. His daughter Ada is delighted to meet Sir Walter Splott, Plain Austen and her Blue Bloodhound, Emma, William Timepiece Thackeray and Georgie Eliot, with her Old Middlemarch sheepdog, Flossie.

But Ada has a mystery to solve - unexplained and terrifying howls in the night, the mysterious tracks of a huge beast, chewed shoes and stolen hams.

Ably assisted by dog show judges Hands Christmas Andersen and Countess Pippi Shortstocking, several young friends and three monkeys, Ada proves herself to be a brave, determined detective.

Literary allusions and comical pranks abound in this high-speed adventure, penned and illustrated by the children's laureate, Chris Riddell.
