Amelia Fang would much rather hang out with her pet pumpkin Squashy and her friends Florence the yeti (DON'T CALL HER BEAST!) and Grimaldi the reaper than dance at her parents' annual Barbaric Ball. Then the King's spoiled son Tangine captures Squashy, and Amelia and her friends must escape the party to plan a daring rescue! In their race against time, they begin to realize things in Nocturnia may not be quite what they seem...
Welcome to the world of Nocturnia, where darkness reigns supreme, glitter is terrifying, and unicorns are the stuff of nightmares! Sparkly little vampire Amelia will delight young readers eager for just-spooky-enough adventures. This early chapter book, with fun and characterful black and white illustrations throughout, will get kids giggling with its topsy-turvy look at what's scary (and what's ordinary.)
"Anderson plays her premise expertly, creating giggleworthy, topsy-turvy scenarios that are just over-the-top enough.... Young goths will be gleeful the creepy fun will continue." — Kirkus Reviews
