The Whispering Skull (Lockwood & Co #2)
|Series:||Lockwood and Co Ser.|
Wardini loves this series. It's a rip-roaring read of a ghost story. Fan-bally-tastic! Great for 10 -15 year olds and a thoroughly good read for adults too.
The second book in this chilling series from global bestselling author, Jonathan Stroud.
"The second volume in Jonathan Stroud's exceptional series ... Stroud's writing is inventive and funny, but be warned: this is packed with grisly ghouls and is not perhaps for the faint-hearted." -- Lorna Bradbury Sunday Telegraph "Seriously scary, brilliant prose." Metro "Plenty of humour alongside the chills." Financial Times "I've waited with baited breath for the second instalment of Jonathan Stroud's Lockwood Co novels. At last, The Whispering Skull is here and it is definitely worth the wait." Scotsman Teen review "Stroud delivers another riveting narrative" Booklist
