About the Author

A truly prodigious and original artist, Edward St. John Gorey (1925-2000), gave to the world over one hundred works, including The Gashlycrumb Tinies, The Doubtful Guest and The Wuggly Ump; prize-winning set and costume designs for innumerable theater productions from Cape Cod to Broadway; a remarkable number of illustrations in publications such as The New Yorker and The New York Times. Gorey's masterful pen and ink illustrations and his ironic, offbeat humor have brought him critical acclaim and an avid following throughout the world.

Unlike most of Mr. Gorey's more macabre fare, this is truly a children's book of delightful images of Halloween. The book is actually two books in one with "A Halloween Treat" on the front side and "Edward Gorey's Ghosts" starting from the back cover when you flip the book over. In the Halloween Treat half, each page has one of the letters that make up the word Halloween on the bottom corner and alternates between children with Candy Corn masks, cats in costume (like the front cover image) or 2 other small children out trick or treating who keep expecting jelly beans and get something Gorey-esque instead. Simple text captions for the illustrations are easy for children to follow/read. The "Edward Gorey Ghosts" section has images of ghosts ranging from humorous to slightly spooky, in different settings with no text, takes up a little more than half the book, but again, delightful drawings worthy of showing the smallest tyke with no cause for fear (either yours or theirs :) A truly lovely Halloween Treat and suitable gift for all ages, whether you are a Gorey fan or not!

Format: Hardcover
Exhumed from Edward Gorey's archive of unpublished material "A Halloween Treat" shimmers with the author's unique appeal. A dos-a-dos or back-to-back book (and one of Gorey's favorite, eclectic formats), the first half of this handy tome presents a colorful trick-or-treat adventure - complete with spelling lesson - for youngsters. Flip the book over to indulge in "Edward Gorey's Ghosts," a rich selection of ethereal drawings both familiar and newly unveiled. The two parts of "A Halloween Treat" prove that Gorey's ability to enthrall with imagery as sunny as they may be sinister remains always thought-provoking, ageless, and timeless.

Format: Hardcover
'A Halloween Treat', by Edward Gorey, is a whimsical, feline-fraught trick-or-treat outing, pleasantly bright and light, a colorful contrast to its flip-side companion, 'Edward Gorey's Ghosts'. The three D's of Gorey's trademark artwork - Dense, Dark and Detailed cross-hatched pen and ink are featured here, including three previously unpublished drawings. It's a small but satisfying collection of classic Gorey pen & ink work, stitched together dos-à-dos (or rather tête-bêche or head-to-toe) with 'A Halloween Treat'. Both capture the joyful haunting mystery that is Halloween night.
