Something’s afoot! We are wishing a very Happy Book Birthday to Goodly and Grave in a Bad Case of Kidnap, written by Justine Windsor and illustrated by Becka Moor.
Lucy Goodly is the new boot girl at Grave Hall, working for the cold, aloof Lord Grave.
But Lucy soon notices that strange things are afoot in her new home. There are moving statues, magical books and Lord Grave has a secret.
Meanwhile, all over the country, children are vanishing. Could the mystery of the missing children be linked to the strange goings-on? Lucy is determined to find out.
Justine’s witty text is in wonderfully creepy cahoots with Becka’s spooky illustrations, creating a story which is a treat for readers who like a wickedly old-fashioned mystery … with a magical twist.
This is the first adventure for Goodly and Grave in the an exciting new middle-grade fiction series. The second book, Goodly and Grave in a Deadly Case of Murder is due for publication in July 2017.
