About the Author

Barbara Cantini is the illustrator of numerous books for young readers. The Ghoulia series is her first author-illustrated project. She lives in the Tuscan countryside with her husband, their two daughters, three cats, and a slightly daft hamster.

Praise For…

"Cantini depicts her undead urchin Tim Burton-style, with stitched lips, gray skin, and purple shadows beneath huge eyeballs . . .  the manorial setting has an Addams Family vibe and provides just the right spooky setting for this series opener."

— Kirkus Reviews

"Cantini’s new series is awash in shadowy mixedmedia illustrations that will snag the attention of young Tim Burton fans. Charmingly morbid, the artwork is full of details and funny, handwritten labels that will keep beginning readers focused on the page. Youngsters will connect with Ghoulia’s warm personality and the relatable challenge of making friends. This series starter is definitely a treat."

— Booklist

"Cantini’s detailed full-color drawings ramp up the comedy on every page with labels and asides, including a page from Ghoulia’s Halloween-prep journal. This well-paced series opener will work well as both a read-aloud and a humorous choice for newly independent readers."

— Publishers Weekly

"Cantini’s extensive illustrations are full of humorous details, and Ghoulia is expressive and charming in a Tim Burton kind of way."

— School Library Journal
