Full of strange shadows, the old Maxwell place can be frightening to a timid little kitten like Spooky! As she explores her new home, Spooky finds an unexpected companion in the gruff gargoyle who guards the gates . . . but can she turn this curmudgeon into a new friend? Children ages 4-8 will love watching Spooky overcome her fears as she settles into a new life. This unusual and atmospheric friendship tale makes a delightfully creepy story for Halloween, but is sweet enough for reading year round.
