In Book 4 of this Tim Burton–inspired chapter book series, Ghoulia and her family hit the road for summer vacation!
Ghoulia, Auntie Departed, and Uncle Misfortune are ready for a vacation. They pack up their things and head to Fancy Manor to visit Cousin Dilbert and Auntie Witch. Fancy Manor is nice and rundown, and it’s on Lake Mystery—with lots of opportunity for swimming and other summer fun.
But there’s a hitch in the plan. Because Fancy Manor seems abandoned, the town plans to reclaim the property in just a few days unless a living heir comes forward. Will Ghoulia be able to brew a Return to Life potion strong enough to convince the staff at town hall that this zombie family is actually alive?
"Rendered in bold colors in a delightfully creepy Tim Burton–esque style, they appear on every page, often in double-page spreads, and include lots of small details and quirky annotations that young readers will enjoy examining closely."School Library Journal —
