Courtney Crumrin: Night Things Volume 1 - Ted Naifeh Appeal Characteristics: things that go bump into the night, goblins, spells, weird uncles, families, eerie creepiness

LOVED THIS BOOK. I need to find the rest of the series and explore it. I think the crazy gothic cartoon like tones sold me. I mean Courtney's reactions to situations and expressions were priceless. I really enjoyed being immersed in her weird uncle's world. I have so many questions, but I think I'll have to finish reading the series...and they might be answered. I think Nickelodeon or Disney should pick this series up and make it a show.
