THE GHOULS OF HOWLFAIR
Out October 3rd 2019, Walker Books
Molly Thompson has lots of questions. Questions like: is her Aunt Carol an undead fiend who drinks the blood of the living? Is local celebrity Hectoria Fullsway being driven mad by ghouls? And is Molly's friend Lowry descended from the infamous Kroglin Werewolves?
Serious young historian Molly suspects that the creepy legends about her tourist town of Howlfair are starting to come true. But when her mother bans her from doing any further research, bookworm Molly and her friends - scatty Lowry and mysterious guardian-cat Gabriel - must become covert monster-hunters in order to keep Howlfair safe. It seems that someone is secretly trying to summon Howlfair's mythical monsters, and with the election of a new town mayor looming, everything – and everyone – is looking increasingly suspicious...
"This spooky mystery is brilliantly written, VERY funny and has the BEST female protagonist I have come across in an age. I would gladly follow Molly Thompson to the Gates of Hell and back - and, I'll wager, so will you! Utterly brilliant!"
