Withering-By-Sea- Stella Montgomery Intrigue

Author Judith Rossell


A Victorian fantasy-adventure, perfect for fans of Wildwood, Lemony Snicket and Tensy Farlow
Ages: 9+
High on a cliff above the gloomy coastal town of Withering-by-Sea stands the Hotel Majestic. Inside the walls of the damp, dull hotel, eleven-year-old orphan Stella Montgomery leads a miserable life with her three dreadful Aunts.
But one night, Stella sees something she shouldn’t have … Something that will set in motion an adventure more terrifying and more wonderful than she could ever have hoped for …
From hugely talented Australian writer-illustrator Judith Rossell comes a thrilling and gripping Victorian fantasy-adventure, the first in an extraordinarily exciting new series.
‘Wildly imaginative, darkly funny. I was hooked from the first page.’ – Jen Storer, author of tensy Farlow and the Home for Mislaid Children
‘Withering-by-Sea is a delightful, thoroughly enjoyable book … Lots of detail and a sharp ear for cockney-style dialect brings sparkling life to both the setting and characters. this is recommended for fans of Lemony Snicket, ‘the Sisters Grimm’ and ‘Verity Sparks’.’ – Australian Books+Publishing
