Gustav Gloom #2 - Gustav Gloom and the Nightmare VaultThe second installment in the Gustav Gloom series (Gustav Gloom and the Nightmare Vault) is set to arrive on bookshelves next month, and I couldn’t be more excited. The story is humorous and dark, but for me, the first book in the series (Gustav Gloom and the People Taker) was a full-family out-loud read. That’s right, we’d sit around the living room on cold snowy days with a fire blazing in the fireplace while I would read to all of my many many many children and Mama Funk the story of Gustav Gloom, Fernie, and the mysterious shadows in the mansion.

Gustav Gloom #2: Gustav Gloom and the Nightmare Vault
will be released on Thursday, April 18th, 2013

I’m definitely ready for another dose of Adam-Troy Castro’s demiurgic (thank you thesaurus) humor along with a dash of Kristen Margiotta’s beautifully dark and fitting illustrations. And I see book #3 in the series (Gustav Gloom and the Four Terrors) is on it’s way in August of this year, as well…

Borrow. Read. Return. Repeat.
