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.
