      Reviewed by Tasha for TeensReadTooJust above the town of Fracture lies a ghastly castle with an even ghastlier occupant, Lady Lamorna, who is just plain freaky. Her latest wish is a magnificent black velvet gown that is studded with skulls. When she goes to pay for it she finds that her treasure chest is empty. Instead of canceling her order, Lady Lamorna concocts a plan to pay for the dress. Her plan includes a couple of members of the royal party, some frogs, and blackmail. Then there is Graci [...]

      “The Robe of Skulls” has a very neat plot with several interesting characters: Gracie and Prince Marcus, Lady Lamorna and Gubble, Foyce and Mange (Gracie’s step-sister and father), not forgetting the two bats, Marlon and his daughter Millie who serve as guides and protectors. The wicked Lady Lamorna is short of cash and devises a cruel plan to generate income; her cunning plan is taken over by the even more cunning Foyce. At the same time Gracie escapes from her unpleasant home situation a [...]

      I think my niece (age nine) would really, really like this. I'll pass it on to her.

      Сказочная история, в которой нашлось место принцам, лягушкам, ведьмам, магии, насквозь интриганским летучим мышам, странно очаровательным големам и плетению полотна судьбы в качестве исправительных работ. А началось все с того, что одна ведьма вознамерилась заказать себе [...]

      In a very Tim Burton-y world, an evil sorceress wants a new outfit. (That's her in the outfit on the cover.) Unfortunately, somebody has swiped all her gold--a mystery which (**spoiler alert!**) is never solved in this book--so to pay for the dress, she has to raise some more cash. She hatches a fiendish plot, and with her slave troll, leaves her castle for the first time in ages.French creates a pretty interesting fantasy world and put some fun bad guys in it, but then doesn't seem to know what [...]

      I'm nearly finished with this fast-paced read from Candlewick Press.Vivian French is a fabulous writer and the plot, characters and even the names of the people and places come together superbly to create a believable fantasy world of sorcerers, wizards, goblins and laugh-out-loud situations that will appeal to readers of all ages.This is book one in a series and I can't wait to discover more.

    8. Tamora Pierce on said:

      What great fun! Advisor bats, a half-werewolf beautiful enemy, and a spell for turning royals into frogs! I think Holly Black's Spiderwick fans would like this one--I certainly did!

    9. Sand-Witch on said:

      Really really really good book with a mix of everything. Definitely one of the best books I've read. Yeah.

      In the time that we've had no Good Reads, I have started a new book! This book, nobody has really heard about. I'm still trying to figure out if this book is part of a series or not. Well, by now, your probably wondering what book I'm about to write about. Robe of Skulls! Yes! That is the book I'm reading! The Robe of Skulls, is by Vivian French. Very fancy name, right? The authors name contributes to how fancy this book is. While I'm talking about what's so fancy, I might as well tell you about [...]

      A friend drew my attention to this book, as it looked like my sort of thing and it is, it so is. From the very beginning when the evil (but ageing) sorceress Lady Lamorna is introduced thinking about ordering a new gown in black velvet, embroidered with spiders’ webs, poison ivy and skulls, with ‘rows and rows of dear little skulls sewn all along the hem’ and ‘layers and layers of blood-red petticoats’ I knew I was at home (I want that gown too). But she needs gold to pay the Ancient C [...]

      Lady Lamorna - a down on her luck sorceress - orders a new robe of skulls from the Ancient Crones and then has to figure out how to pay for it. With a little help from her troll slave, she decides to turn princes into frogs, then offer her services (at a steep price) to their families in order to change them back. In the meantime, Gracie Gillypot longs for a better life away from her nasty stepfather and her evil stepsister, Foyce. With the help of a talking bat, Gracie escapes her stepfamily an [...]

      I'm pretty sure this is up there as one of my favourite children's books.Gracie Gillypot, a Trueheart, lives with her abusive stepfather and stepsister. Marcus, the scruffiest prince you'll ever meet, wants to escape from a royal family outing and go exploring for adventure instead. Lady Lamorna, a delightfully evil sorceress, simply wants a new gown. I've yet to mention the bats and the Ancient Crones, and Gubble the troll, and the royal families of four other kingdoms besides Marcus's.This is [...]

    14. Treasure on said:

      Lovely! A mix of Matilda, Harry Potter, and The Phantom Toll Booth! Nice, slightly macabe illustrations and several amusing, intertwining stories full of talking bats, blood read petticoats, old crones, and frog princes. And in the end, good triumphs over evil, as it should in such a fairy tale!

    15. Sarah on said:

      A great romping adventure. I loved both the Truehearts and the villains, especially the wickedest step sister ever, but it was the chatty bats who kept me laughing the whole way through. I now want my own fleet of friendly bats to pop by daily and say “Keep it up, kiddo!”

    16. Heather on said:

      I would not have chosen this book based on the cover art. But, hey, the cover art is kind of misleading, so good thing I picked it up! This is an entertaining and enjoyable fractured fairytale, not a story about a creepy lady obsessed with death and/or skulls.

    17. Christina *Cantarella* on said:

      This book is probably the only fairytale filled with epicness.

    18. Cha Iskandar on said:

      Suka dengan covernya yang merah meriah, ceritanya walaupun ringan tapi seru.

      French, Vivian The Robe of Skulls, 208 p. Candlewick, 2008. Language - G. Lady Lamorna has the perfect vision of a new gown in her head and has placed the order with the Ancient Crones, but her treasure chest is empty. Meanwhile, Gracie Gillypot is determined to escape the clutches of her mean stepfather and her truly evil stepsister. With the help of a wily bat, she steps right into a great deal of trouble and has to take up a challenge to thwart her own stepsister to avert a greater evil. Whil [...]

      Tales/cerita anak-anak yang bagus. Dan tentu saja bacaan ringan karena ditujukan untuk anak-anak. The Robe Of Skulls - Jubah Tengkorak mencampur beberapa aspek dari cerita lama yang sudah dikenal sehingga menyajikan perasaan familiar namun dengan cerita yang berbeda. Karena ini tales/cerita dari negeri luar maka disarankan agar anak-anak membacanya dengan ditemani. Rekomendasi untuk cerita pengantar tidur karena menyampaikan pesan moral dan berakhir bahagia. :)

    21. Jennifer on said:

      A fun, easy read. It starts with a sorceress ordering a fabulous new dress, which she now needs to scramble to pay for. Thus starts an adventure with a brave Trueheart girl and a prince going off to save a bunch of other royals.I'm not sure what makes people a True or Falseheart. The stepsister (I'd like to know if the parents really did get married, or if that was all untrue) was incredibly evil for no real reason.

    22. Debbie on said:

      First in the Five Kingdoms series. Lady Lamorna orders a fancy new gown, but realizes too late that she has no money to pay for it. She decides to turn a few princes into toads and then ask their families to pay a steep price for the restoration of their children. A Cinderella-ish Girl, a rebellious prince, and a couple of chatty bats race to foil the plot. Cute adventure for upper elementary readers.

    23. Shazza Maddog on said:

      This is an absolutely wonderful book for tweens, about a prince who doesn't want to be and a girl who's stepsister and stepfather treat her terribly, and a very old sorceress who wants enough money to pay for a robe of skulls. Oh, and a couple of bats. And a troll who has a tendency to lose his head. And the Ancient Crones. Did I mention Glee the pony and the donkeys? Just love this book!

    24. Maya Widiatmoko on said:

      Done!Bener juga klo buku ini bagus. Aneh? teuteup. Namanya juga buku fantasy anak2. Tapi untuk bacaan dewasa okeey juga. Alurnya cepat.Good to bring back my reading mood!Heran kenapa butuh waktu lama ya?

    25. Ginny Kaczmarek on said:

      A great introduction to a fun series. Loved the upside-down fairytale feeling--where the Trueheart is considered a bad thing, until it isn't--and the weaving together of familiar tropes with fresh humor. Nice for the budding Goths (and anyone with an affinity for the brothers Grimm).

    26. Dessy Priyatna on said:

      Kisah tentang penyihir, pangeran kembar, gadis yang malang, saudari tiri yang kejam, troll, dan kelelawar usil, berhasil membawa saya kembali ke khayalan masa kecil. suka, meski baca yang terjemahannya 😁

    27. Kara on said:

      Funny, fairytale style read. Enjoyed it immensely. Great for young readers.

    28. Jihad Cohill on said:

      The book, The Robe of Skulls, took place in the main character Gracie’s basement. She spent a lot of time in there. The reason she spends a lot of time in there is because she is a happy, cheerful girl. And her stepfather and stepsister don’t like happy or cheerful people. So her punishment was to stay in the basement. And on top of that the house didn’t really have food so they had to eat water soup. The book, Robe of Skulls, was a good book. What happens at the beginning is Gracie gets p [...]
