Overall, the second book in this comedy horror series for children has continued in the same fun and scary vein as the first. It sees the delightful Buttercup encounter a weird new adventure in a cleverly and thrilling way and a great use of language that will not overwhelm its young readers.
The pages are littered with black and white drawings, adding a bit more illustrated humour to the story with its short chapters, making it easier to read for those slightly reluctant readers.
With brains in jars, mad scientists, zombies and cute bunny rabbits roaming around places like the Misty Marshes of Misery, My Gawd We’re All Going To Die Swamp and Hangman’s Hill, what more of a fun filled thrilling adventure could a reader of junior fiction need?
Buttercup Sunshine and the House on Hangman’s Hill is fantastic fun, mixing children’s comedy horror with the classic Frankenstein story, creating a fun, witty and engaging story with just the right amount of frights for its target audience.
