Great fun to read aloud, even if my Irish accent is ridiculous.

When 12-year-old Stephanie Edgely inherits her novelist uncle’s fortune she discovers--and eagerly dives into--a whole new world of magic and monsters, sorcery and devilry. Her guide through this realm is a living, breathing, and quite sophisticated, talking skeleton named Skulduggery Pleasant--and as the book’s cover states, “he’s the good guy.” Stephanie and Skulduggery are unforgettable characters; their repartee is as snappy as his wardrobe. Action-packed, witty, suspenseful, and occasionally laugh-out-loud-funny, Landy’s sizable novel is captivating from beginning to end. Expect anxious requests from readers in middle grades on up for a sequel to this enormously fun fantasy.
