Goth Girl #4: Goth Girl and the Sinister Symphony

Oh the envy! Ada has a faun living in her wardrobe – and a spooky mystery to solve! A new Goth Girl book is always music to our ears. But the haunting melodies drifting down the gloomy corridors of Ghastly-Gorm Hall might not be as quite charming as they seem. Lord Goth is hosting a music festival at the hall: a dazzling showcase of fine composers. Ada can’t wait, and she’s trying to plan it all. Trouble is, she’s being distracted by her granny’s matchmaking efforts, and the pesky Maltravers. (Not to mention the faun!) But does one of the music-makers have a sinister plan?

  • Fourth in this bestselling, award-winning series
  • A hilarious, spooky tale of mystery and music
  • Chris Riddell is a former Children’s Laureate
  • Beautifully illustrated in a witty, ornate style
