Staff Reviews


Meet Glister, the curious, independent, and kind heroine of this collection of five graphic novels taking place at her ancestral home, Chilblain Hall which holds many more secrets than it first appears--magical teapots, spectral authors, and spontaneously appearing Egyptian wings. Trolls, witches, and endless cups of tea can be found in this engaging and addictive series.-

Description


Strange things happen around Glister Butterworth. A young girl living on her family's English estate, Glister has unusual adventures every day, from the arrival of a teapot haunted by a demanding ghost, a crop of new relatives blooming on the family tree, a stubborn house that walks off its land in a huff, and a trip to Faerieland to find her missing mother.

- Perfect for ages 8 and up
- All four Glister stories collected into one new edition (Glister: The Haunted Teapot, Glister: The Family Tree, Glister: The House Hunt, and Glister: The Faerie Host)
Praise for Glister

- "The art is simply a delight, perfectly capturing the quirkiness of the world Glister lives in."--Inis Magazine

- "An absolutely charming, beautifully drawn series featuring a wonderfully inventive, eccentric and downright cool female heroine. It's great for children, especially young girls, but has equal appeal to any existing fan of Watson's work, or any fan of really great comics..." --Forbidden Planet blog

- "What I really appreciate, apart from the immaculate cartooning with its incredibly sturdy architecture, is that the language is far from patronising with a vocabulary that puts most superhero comics to shame..." --Page 45

- "A sweet little tale with masses of quirky detail."--Financial Times
