Goth Girl Series

by
(63 reviews)

Goth Girl by Chris Riddell is a beautifully illustrated series about the adventures of Ada Goth - a lonely girl living in a very strange house - from the bestselling author/ illustrator of Ottoline.

The first Goth Girl book, Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse, came out in 2013, winning the Costa Children’s Book Award and getting nominated for the CILIP Kate Greenaway and the Children’s National Book Award. There are now four books in the series.

The wonderful illustrations by the former children’s laureate (2015-2017), Chris Riddell, make these mystery stories perfect for readers 7+ who love adventures with a dark or fantastical twist. 

Ada Goth lives with her very odd father, Lord Goth at the enormous Ghastly-Gorm Hall where children are meant to be seen and not heard. Whatever is going on at the Hall - whether it is the Ghastly-Gorm Garden Party and Bake-Off, the Hall’s music festival or a gamekeeper with dastardly plans - Ada is on hand to make sure the ghastly going-ons don’t get out of hand and to solve the spooky mysteries.

Th Goth Girl books can be read in any order, but we recommend starting with book one - Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse.

All the Goth Girl books in order:

Book 1: Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse (2013)
Book 2: Goth Girl and the Fete Worse Than Death (2014)
Book 3: Goth Girl and the Wuthering Fright (2015)
Book 4: Goth Girl and the Sinister Symphony (2017)
