French, Vivian The Robe of Skulls, 208 p. Candlewick, 2008. Language - G. Lady Lamorna has the perfect vision of a new gown in her head and has placed the order with the Ancient Crones, but her treasure chest is empty. Meanwhile, Gracie Gillypot is determined to escape the clutches of her mean stepfather and her truly evil stepsister. With the help of a wily bat, she steps right into a great deal of trouble and has to take up a challenge to thwart her own stepsister to avert a greater evil. While the cover of the book looks evil and dark, it is really light-hearted and reads more like fairytale. If your students like slightly creeoy things, they will enjoy this very much.
