    I hadn’t read any of the Courtney Crumrin stories previous

    I hadn’t read any of the Courtney Crumrin stories previously, but when I saw this new edition I jumped at the chance. Courtney’s parents are so awesome – in that oh-my-god-they-are-clueless-butt-kissing-money-grubbing-idiots kind of way. So basically they are just a lot of fun to watch and read the things that come out of their mouths. However Courtney and her sass steal the show. This new house has its secrets, which are creepy and fantastic to read about, but it’s more than the house that’s got the paranormal aspect working for it. Courtney encounters weirdness in the forest between her new home and school and at another family’s house while she is babysitting. There is more than just one type of paranormal creature in this story, which makes it even more entertaining. The only drawback for me is that I wish there was more character development with Courtney and that more interacting with her Great Uncle Aloysius had taken place.

    Entertaining

    Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things was a fast, interesting and entertaining read. This edition in particular contains the four individual issues of the comic and is the first of four volumes.

    The narration is a combination of Courtneys inner thinking processes and a goblin called Butterworth who lives in the woods and feeds on human flesh.

    If you’re into dark, eerie graphic novels you might enjoy this one. The artwork works well with the story giving it a dark and gothic feel.

    I enjoyed it, although I wasn’t blown away by it. I will be definitely reading the rest of the series since I found Courtney’s little adventures entertaining.

    Cute Little Monster

    This story is cute and spooky at the same time. The monsters in Courtney Crumrin are cute. The mean bully-girl Alicia is cute with curly pigtails. Courtney herself is cute, although she has no nose. The creaky old Victorian houses are cute, if spooky. Even scary-but-secretly-nice Uncle Aloysious is cute because he wears slippers all the time and you can tell they want to be bunny slippers really. The story is a fun little adventure into magic and monsters and mayhem. It's reminiscent of Harry Potter in some ways, but in other ways it's totally different. Courtney and Harry have nothing in common except magic. This book contains the first four issues of the series; the next four issues just came out as comic books, and IMHO they're even better. Even scarier and even cuter.
