Description

‘It had been so long since Victoria Stitch had done anything dangerous . . . And she would need dangerous and forbidden magic for an adventure like this . . .’

Victoria Stitch is finally Queen of Wiskling Wood, along with her sister Celestine. She is also proud aunt to Princess Minnie Stitch-diamond baby and next in line to the throne. When old enemies resurface and kidnap Minnie, Victoria Stitch is intent on revenge. It’s time for her to ride again and remind these Wisklings that Victoria Stitch is undeniable, incredible, and almost certainly unstoppable.

Publisher Review

Review of Victoria Stitch: Bad and Glittering. This absorbing miniature melodrama is full of fraught sibling fondness between sweet, gentle Celestine and the marvellously ambitious and snooty Victoria, with Muncaster's own enticing illustrations. * The Guardian * Review of Victoria Stitch: Bad and Glittering. Packed full of gothic glam and with a hefty dose of sparkles and glitter, Victoria Stitch is a fabulous anti-heroine (...). Harriet Muncaster's irresistible elfin illustrations run throughout, from the deliciously mean Ursuline to the sweetness-and-light Celestine. * BookTrust * Review of Victoria Stitch: Bad and Glittering. Any reader who fell for Isadora Moon and is ready for something a bit longer and rather darker, will surely love Harriet's new gothic fantasy. The illustrations are simply divine especially as Victoria Stitch with her funky, pointy toed, heeled boots is a fashionista who loves to strut her stuff in melodramatic wiskling style as befits the superbly woven, absorbing narrative. To enter Wiskling Wood is utter enchantment every step of the way; it's hard to leave for whatever reason... * Red Reading Hub *
