Unusual and Enjoyable Tales

2021 Readers' Favorite International Book Awards Bronze Medal Winner!

An utterly fascinating and wryly composed collection of companion stories to Edward Gorey's alphabetical illustrations in 'The Gashlycrumb Tinies'.

These darkly humorous tales capture the essence of wit and satire with one incredible tale for each child depicted in Gorey's most famous illustrations, from Amy's stumble down the stairs to Zillah's death by gin.

These tales are all about human behavior, characteristics, chance and choice, and life and death. From Mystery to SciFi, from Drama to Fairy Tale and from Adventure to Gothic, this book has something for everyone. 2021 Reader's Favorite 5-Star Award Winner.
Perfect for any Edward Gorey, Charles Addams, John Bellairs or Tim Burton fans.
