Bitterly is one of the most talented students in Fright School. Because she is so excited to help, Bitterly is the first of her class to be assigned a little girl to protect. As a naturally gifted spellcaster, Bitterly has potential to do great things, but she’ll soon realize she needs to overcome her own fears first.


The only thing Belladonna loves more than a good book is her friends. Driven to learn as much as she can, Belladonna spends most of her free time studying. Belladona can recite any spell in a pinch and is very eager to help her first little girl overcome nightmares.


Abyssma is strong, independent and fiercely loyal to her fellow Pinkaboos. She has a fabulous set of horns that change color when she’s mad. They’re pretty cool. As the biggest Pinkaboo, bullies tend to keep their distance when she’s around.

Miss Viper

Miss Viper is the one and only teacher at Fright School. Since becoming a teacher in the year 1892 (which was a very long time ago), Miss Viper has taught young frights at Fright School how to enter the dreams of little girls to battle their nightmares. She received Teacher of the Year Award in 1893, 1994 and again in 2014. She is beloved by all her students.


Bullies are usually mean because they’re not happy . . . and Vex is the school bully. To make herself feel better, Vex makes the younger frights feel bad about themselves by calling them names. She targets Bitterly and her friends and Bitterly quickly learns that standing up to her isn’t easy!
