Summary

Stephanie joins forces with her dead uncle's companion, Skulduggery Pleasant (the living skeleton of a dead wizard), against the evil forces of wizards set on destroying the world

Stephanie's (12) uncle Gordon is a writer of horror fiction. But when he dies and leaves her his estate, Stephanie learns that while he may have written horror, it certainly wasn't fiction.

Pursued by evil forces intent on recovering a mysterious key, Stephanie finds help from an unusual source - the wisecracking skeleton of a dead wizard. When all hell breaks loose, it's lucky for Skulduggery that he's already dead. Though he's about to discover that being a skeleton doesn't stop you from being tortured, if the torturer is determined enough. And if there's anything Skulduggery hates, it's torture! Will evil win the day? Will Stephanie and Skulduggery stop bickering long enough to stop it? One thing's for sure: evil won't know what's hit it.

NOTE : Aimed at 8-12 year olds by author and publisher, but we have placed it for older readers both because of the content of the story and the maturity of the humour.

NOTE : Winner of the Red House Children's Book Award for older readers and overall winner 2008.
