Ghoulia lives in Crumbling Manor with her Auntie Departed and spends most of her time playing with Tragedy, her beloved albino greyhound. But things aren’t as easy as they seem for this little zombie girl—all she wants is a real friend. She tries to venture past the manor’s walls, but she can’t hide her pale green skin or the deep purple circles under her eyes. The other children will be afraid of her, and no one will want to be her friend. But when Halloween rolls around, Ghoulia hatches a brilliant plan. All the other, ordinary children will be dressed up like monsters, so Ghoulia can go out into the town and be entirely herself. In the end, all the kids realize that Ghoulia is (almost) just like them and learn that friendship can come in many forms.

To Ghoulia, she's just the average girl. To us, she's something completely different: a zombie. Ghoulia's aunt wants her to stay away from the other children because she's scared they'll be chased out of their home if the truth of what they are is discovered. Ghoulia has her pet dog named Tragedy, but she still wishes she could make more friends.

When Ghoulia sees children dressing up as monsters, she sees her opportunity to leave the manor's grounds. Ghoulia does her research on Halloween so she'll be fully prepared. What better costume for her than a zombie? The only question is can she keep her secret from being unveiled.

GHOULIA is a cute story about a little girl who just wants friends. Monsters, like zombies, have begun popular, so this is the perfect children's book for our time. I love that the setting is Halloween and the layout of the book. The illustrations are detailed and I love the little notes of old pictures and such.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of monsters, zombies, Halloween, and friendship.
