Fan-favorite and critical darling Courtney Crurmin is back in a special edition, full color graphic novel. Courtney's parents have dragged her out to a high-to-do suburb to live with her creepy Great Uncle Aloysius in his spooky old house. She's not only the new kid in school, but also discovers strange things lurking under her bed!
"Please do yourself a favor and check this new series out . . . I say that not because you'll need to do so, but rather because you'll want to. Courtney Crumrin is a winner from start to finish." -- Comic Book Resources
"Courtney's cute, round face, lack of a nose, sour demeanor ("I'm rude, bad-tempered, and basically, I don't like people") and unwillingness to play the popularity game make her a charming character that kids and savvy parents can snarl together with. Naifeh's deft observation that run-of-the-mill challenges can rock children's' worlds, should garner him a huge readership. Courtney should land the Harry Potter audience, because like Potter, she's sensitive to the same obstacles of alienation and acceptance. But as Naifeh points out, of all the things that go bump in the night, it's the everyday struggles that make our spines tingle in broad daylight." -- School Library Journal
