Goth Girl and the Fete Worse than Death Goth Girl and the Fete Worse than Death

by Chris Riddell

Celebrity chefs are arriving for the Great Ghastly-Gorm Bake Off; Maltravers the gamekeeper is behaving as suspiciously as usual, there's a shy Lady's Maid in a wardrobe making suspiciously growly noises and no-one seems to have remembered Ada Goth's birthday. Chris Riddell's third book in the Goth Girl series intrigues and delights with a cakey combination of adventure, love and webbed footnotes.


This beautiful, quirky and hilarious book will appeal to both boys and girls, particularly any fans of the Great British Bake Off. Children will love identifying their favourite chefs - Nigellina Sugarspoon, Gordon Ramsgate and Heston Harboil, among others - in Chris Riddell's tongue-in-cheek illustrations. A fun, pun-filled book for children with plenty of appeal to teens and adults too.
