Booklist - 07/01/2019 Amelia Fang’s favorite thing to do in the world of Nocturnia is to spend time with her pet pumpkin, Squashy, and her friends Florence the yeti and Grimaldi, son of the Grim Reaper. As the traditional Barbaric Ball approaches, hosted by Amelia’s parents, she is shocked to learn that King Vladimir and the spoiled Prince Tangine plan to attend. The prince even joins Catacomb Academy, where it falls to Amelia to help familiarize him with the school. When Tangine takes Squashy for his own, Amelia attempts to rescue her pet and, in the process, discovers a secret about the royal family that will shock the inhabitants of the Kingdom of the Dark. In a world populated by goblins, ghosts, unicorns, and more, young readers will delight in the adventures of Amelia and her friends. Nocturnia is brought to life by lively illustrations interspersed throughout the text, along with a magical story that delivers a powerful message about kindness and friendship. - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
