Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Those mostly familiar with Naifeh’s work on Holly Black’s Good Neighbors trilogy will find Courtney Crumrin’s first adventures revelatory of what he’s capable of on his own. In this opening story, middle-schooler Courtney moves into the house of her creepy great-uncle Aloysius and finds more to occupy her time than constant disdain for her upwardly mobile and downwardly aware parents. Her new life includes the monsters—real monsters—that lurk in the woods, as well as another kind in her new school: a gang of elitist bullies who have no idea of the supernatural underbelly that surrounds them. Courtney soon discovers that the worlds of monsters and humans interact more than anyone imagines, and both interest and duty demand that she dabble with her uncle’s dark arts to combat the evils. It’s a chance for the mismatched relatives to bond and provides the sweet center of Naifeh’s dark comedy. In the end, Courtney’s a highly relatable heroine for younger readers. Ages 12–up. (Mar.)

    A fun new graphic novel about a young girl who doesn't fit in. I

    A fun new graphic novel about a young girl who doesn't fit in. I loved the main character Courtney. She is cynical, smart, and cool. The story is interesting and dark. It takes place in an old creepy mansion in the ritzy part of town. Courtney has just moved into her Uncle's place with her idiotic parents, but cannot seem to fit in, even though she doesn't try very hard.

    The biggest problem I had with this book is that they seemed to drop plot lines right as they got interesting. Someone gets eaten, oh well! Must save the baby, who can be bothered! Your life has been stolen, go away...okay! I don't understand. Maybe if Mr. Naifeh used the entire novel for one plot line it would have been a more developed story.

    On the plus size it was a very fast read and the illustrations were great. As other reviewers stated, I am not sure why Courtney is noseless. Very strange...
