For readers who love Neil Gaiman’s Coraline and mysteries comes a spooky new read just in time for Halloween.

Part modern fairy tale, part mystery, all spooky, The Peculiar Peggs of Riddling Woods keeps readers guessing until the very last page.

Something odd is going on in the town of Suds. Children are fading to gray and disappearing. When Poppy’s mother dies, she goes to stay with her Gran there. She soon makes friends with Erasmus who is investigating the disappearances. Together they follow the clues into the Riddling Woods. The answers they seek are where magic is so dark only the bravest should tread.

Masterfully plotted, this is a wonderful tale of friendship, family and dealing with grief that will have you begging for more. It is a must read.
