Product Description

Even scarier than Coraline. Holly goes blacker than black in this tale of a doll made from the bones of a dead girl. And she wants to play… Zach, Poppy and Alice have been playing the same game for years: a game of pirates and thieves, mermaids and warriors. Ruling over all is the Great Queen, a bone-china doll who curses those who cross her. But when Zach quits the game, Poppy starts having dreams about the Queen – and the ghost of a girl who will not rest until the doll is buried in her empty grave. Is the doll just a doll, or something more sinister? And if there really is a ghost, will it ever let them go? If you thought Spiderwick was dark, you haven’t yet read Doll Bones. A Newbery Honor medallist, with the reviews to match.

Holly Black

An avid collector of rare folklore volumes, Holly spent her early years in a decaying Victorian mansion where her mother fed her on a steady diet of ghost stories and faerie tales – an upbringing with eerie similarities to the settings in The Spiderwick Chronicles. She also writes for the older teen audience with her faerie fantasy novels, Tithe and Ironside. Holly lives in Massachusetts with her husband and a spooky doll collection.

    What if our games and fantasies were real? Three children-on the edge of adolescence-set off on one last adventure in answer to a dead girl’s wishes. Beautifully written. I particularly enjoyed the friendships between Poppy, Zach, and Alice. Scary, but not too scary. You must buy this book!
