What is it about puppets in creepy stories!? This sounds like a sweetly satisfying story for this time of year. How did you discover it?


Poor puppets, they get such a bad rap, but they do tend to be creepy and sinister. I won't tell you about the puppet that comes later in the is a good book, though a little bit dark really since it is about bullying. I am not sure where I found it--I think it must have been through one of Book Riots many (many many many) lists/newsletters that I get from them. I liked the parallel storylines--it was clever how she did that.


Sounds like a fun read. Love the art!

Sometimes you just need fun and easy and this was it for me. And her art is great, I agree!


Now that you say that, you're right--it does have that feeling to it since it is pretty monochromatic. And the story is a little creepy really--puppets and nasty girls....
