Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy

All I can say is that it was a great read! Suduggery Pleasant taken its spot alongside some of the famous fantasy novels for children.

Although it has a cliche for a story with the usual kid figures out that there's a whole different world around her, gets fascinated by it, wants nothing more but to be a part of it, so she gets tangled in a web of risky adventure. However, what shocked me the most is that the main character is a human skeleton! complete with detective attire. It was fun imagining it walking among the people, battling enemies, protecting the heroine, and being the good guy for a change. It's new and you can't help but to like Skulduggery albeit his appearance. The story ended satisfyingly well but not quite because we all know it's a series. I would absolutely recommend this one to children or anyone who wants a thrilling adventure with lovable characters. 

I give this 4/5 stars!
