  • (174 reviews)

    The Eerie-on-Sea Mysteries, by award-winning author/ illustrator Thomas Taylor, are creepy middle-grade adventure stories for ages 9+. When the first book Malamander was published in 2019, it was an instant hit with kids, parents, teachers and librarians who loved the mysterious characters and gripping plot-twists. There are now three books in the series, with the fourth, Festergrimm, due to follow in 2022.

    Eerie-on-Sea a strange and mysterious place, which nobody visits in winter when storms rage and monstrous creatures creep. The books follow the adventures of Herbert Lemon and Violet Parma’s daring adventures there, as they attempt to battle dark forces and solve the mysteries at the heart of their chilling seaside town.

    We recommend reading the series in order, starting with book one Malamander.

    All the Eerie-on-Sea Mystery books in order:

    Book 1: Malamander (2019)
    Book 2: Gargantis (2020)
    Book 3: Shadowghast (2021)
