Goth Froth for Early Readers. Cudweed wants a monkey for his birthday in this brand new story featuring some of the characters that have proved such a hit in the Raven Mysteries series for slightly older kids but Cudweed's is a terrific introduction for readers aged 5-8 particularly boys.
Cudweed's birthday is coming up, and, like all small boys, he has big ideas and many lists about the presents he'd really like. Preparations for the party are in full swing at Otherhand Castle and the excitement is mounting. Sadly though for Cudweed, his parents, Lord and Lady Otherhand are definitely not keen on him adding to his collection of pets. Will he be disappointed, or will he get his heart's desire: a small but noisy monkey? And if he does get what he wants, will it be by fair means or foul?
