The good kind is delightful creepy that’s just right for middle grade/younger elementary readers. If you like Tim Burton, try this.

Ghoulia is written for readers moving into Juvenile Fiction but who still enjoy a ton of illustrations and shorter chapters (with no emotional angst). I think the artwork is superb, a bit Gorey-like and certainly complimentary of the text, which indeed is about Ghoulia finding/making new friends after being forbidden to do so by her Auntie Departed. Auntie D believes great harm will be done to them and their home, if anyone were to find out about their "differences". That's right-they are zombies! Things do get lonely for a zombie child, esp. when her only playmate is Tragedy-the albino greyhound, who plays fetch with Ghoulia's arm when allowed. Ghoulia is smart and comes up with a plan that will undoubtedly earn her friendships and change Auntie D's mind about including humans in their life. So yes, quirky, fast, interesting and matter who you are, friends in life (or death) are always good to have around and Ghoulia proves that!
