I have been lucky enough to finish reading Chris Riddell’s latest book in the Goth Girl series, Goth Girl and the Wuthering Fright (2015). The series follows the adventures of Ada Goth, the daughter of the renowned poet Lord Goth who is ‘mad, bad and dangerous to gnomes’.
Riddell has spoken about his research into Lord Byron and his daughter Ada Lovelace who were the inspiration for the series. The first novel in the series Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse (2013) went down a storm over on Reading the Gothic and you can read our review here. What’s got me very excited about this offering though is that it has a werewolf in it! It’s absolutely delightful!
