Robe of Skulls by Vivian French

French, Vivian., Robe of Skulls, 208 pgs. Walker Books Ltd ~Language G, Sexual Content~G, Violence~G

The infamous Lady Lamorna is dying to get her hands on a new dress embroidered with cobwebs and studded around the hem with skulls. The only problem is she can’t afford it! Sorcery isn’t paying what it used to and Lamona is broke. She comes up with a money making scheme involving turning princes into frogs. An unlikely hero appears in an orphan runaway named Gracie Gillypot. Full of slapstick comedy and depressing situations, French has written a mediocre tale that doesn’t do much to excite the reader.
