Groosham Grange Graphic Novel

By Anthony Horowitz

Illustrated by Clement Lefevre

A brand-new graphic novel adaptation of one of the funniest children’s classics.

When David Eliot is expelled from his boring school, his parents send him to Groosham Grange to knock him into shape. But when he arrives at the gothic castle on remote Skrull Island, he discovers Groosham Grange is an unusual sort of school: from signing the register in blood, to the creepy teachers – pallid Mr Kilgraw, Mrs Pedicure bandaged head to toe, hairy Mr Leloup who disappears every full moon... David teams up with fellow pupils Jeffrey and Jill to plan his escape. But can anyone ever escape Groosham Grange? With puns and visual jokes on every page, this is gothic humour at its best. Anthony Horowitz’s classic gothic page-turner is brought to life in full colour in this hilarious graphic novel adaptation. Praise for Groosham Grange: "One of the funniest books of the year." Young Telegraph "Hilarious… Speeds along at full tilt from page to page." Books for Keeps

Customer reviews


'Anthony Horowitz’s spooky spoof is now a graphic novel illustrated with charm and atmosphere.' The Sunday Times

'A Gothic setting meets side-splitting comedy inn Horowitz’s classic take on dark academia.' The Bookseller

'The graphic novel is a brilliant adaptation of the full novel, bringing comedy and horror together perfectly… Darkly comedic, this GN will certainly appeal to a lot of readers and hopefully they will then find the original to enjoy as well.' My Shelves Are Full

'The author and illustrator succeed in producing an atmospheric, tense but often very funny story with a strong protagonist… The graphic novel format gives the reader’s imagination plenty of space with the narrative growing through different frames.' The Letterpress Project
