The Robe of Skulls

<p> All is not well in the crumbling castle high above the mountain village of Fracture. The sorceress Lady Lamorna has her heart set on a new robe. It is a very expensive new robe. To get the cash she will stop at nothing, including kidnapping, blackmail and more than a little black magic. But she reckons without the heroic Gracie Gillypot, not to mention a gallant if rather scruffy prince, two chatty bats, the wickedest stepsister ever, a troll with a grudge - and some very Ancient crones. </p> <p> Shortlisted for the 2008 Royal Mail Awards for Scottish Children's Books. </p> <p> <a href="/books/the-robe-of-skulls/reviews">Read the Royal Mail Awards reviews for <em>The Robe of Skulls</em> now!</a> </p>
