Description:
Ada Goth is the only child of Lord Goth. The two live together in the enormous Ghastly-Gorm Hall.

This makes it hard for her to make friends and, if she's honest, she's rather lonely.
Juvenile.

Reviews
I know they say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but I have to confess it was the appearance of this book that drew me to it. The purple colour of the dress on the cover [my favourite colour] is echoed by shiny purple edges to the pages. The cover also has a sort of rubbery feel to it. Very tactile and visually appealing. I was also intrigued by the miniature booklet in the back featuring the mouse's life story. An original touch. The story itself owes much to other works. From the mouse's introduction: "Call me Ismael" to the nanny who runs off with the chimney sweep, there are literary allusions galore. I'm reasonably well read, and I'm not sure I caught them all. Bottom line is that I don't think it matters too much. It is still an engaging little tale, though at times it does perhaps try a little too hard. I enjoyed reading it.
