Product description

Review

Praise for Derek Landy:

‘Landy [has the] ability to craft an engaging story from start to finish.’ Inis

‘Derek Landy has been something of a publishing phenomenon.’ Irish Post

Praise for Skulduggery:

'A gripping debut.' Phil Hogan, Observer

‘Landy's witty style will win him fans of all ages … It's a good job Harry's [Potter] resigning before he's forcibly retired.’ Irish Mail on Sunday

'Hugely enjoyable – a thrill-a-minute adventure.' Jonathan Stroud, author of the BARTIMAEUS TRILOGY

'It's exciting, pacy, nicely handled and fun. I sincerely hope Landy revisits these characters.' Philip Ardagh, Guardian

'Skulduggery Pleasant serves up a thoroughly satisfying blend of humour, magic and adventure. Once you've met Stephanie and Skullduggery, you'll be clamouring for a sequel.' Rick Riordan, author of the PERCY JACKSON series

‘A remarkably accomplished debut with wonderful dialogue.’ Robert Dunbar, Irish Times

‘A rip-roaring adventure.’ Irish Sunday Independent

About the Author

Derek Landy lives near Dublin. Before writing his children's story about a sharply-dressed skeleton detective, he wrote the screenplays for a zombie movie and a murderous horror film. "I think my career-guidance teacher is spinning in her grave," he says, "or she would be if she were dead."
