Goth Girl and the Fete Worse Than Death

Chris Riddell

About the book

Packed full of beautiful black-and-white illustrations from author Chris Riddell, Goth Girl and the Fete Worse Than Death is the second in this ghostly, funny series from the Costa Award winner Chris Riddell.

Preparations for the Ghastly-Gorm Garden Party and bake-off are under way. Celebrity cooks are arriving at the hall for the big event and, true to form, Maltravers, the indoor gamekeeper, is acting suspiciously. Very suspiciously . . .

Elsewhere at Ghastly-Gorm, Ada's wardrobe-dwelling lady's maid Marylebone has received a marriage proposal. Ada vows to aid the course of true love – and find out what Maltravers is up to – but amidst all this activity, everyone, including her father, appears to have forgotten her birthday!

Though they can be enjoyed in any order, continue this deliciously dark series with Goth Girl and the Wuthering Fright and Goth Girl and the Sinister Symphony.
