Meet Martha Grimstone, a girl trying to find her own special talent in the world, in this collection of sweet gothic fairytales told in a collage of words, photos and drawings.
'I LOVE the Grimstones. Martha is the perfect heroine for little (and big) girls who find that a pen and a trusty diary are the best way to make sense of a crazy world.' - Lisa Forrest (Australian Olympian and author)
