Skulduggery Pleasant

I stumbled across Skulduggery Pleasant (SP) on Friday night.  What a find!   Skulduggery Pleasant is the brilliant creation of Irish playwright Derek Landy.  Mr. Landy has successfully completed two books of a planned nine book series. These unique novels are almost impossible to classify.   They have elements of horror, comedy, mystery and sci-fi genres.  Our protagonist has been described as a well-dressed living-dead wizard-detective.  His charming sidekick and partner is twelve-year-old Stephanie Edgely.   The stakes are nothing less than to save the world!  These are books that might tweak the interest of reluctant readers.  I suggest you visit the Skulduggery website.  Click here to see an awesome video that's embedded into the SP site.

Drat. I have to think about this one again? (I think there is a sequel.) I considered it until page 163 or so, when there was the sentence "The gap was gaping. It was a gaping gap." I just couldn't.

I'm checking out your web site and blog because I am thinking of adding a "boy" section to my own blog. Being a "girl", I need all the help I can get.
