Grade 7 Up—Four of Poe's morbid short stories are adapted for teens in this heavily illustrated presentation: "The Tell-Tale Heart," "The System of Dr. Tarr and Professor Fether," "The Oblong Box," and "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar." Grimly intersperses his horror-infused ink-and-watercolor cartoon art throughout Poe's putrid prose. The effect is an offering that bridges graphic and traditional print formats. Great for readers who adore the gothic and the gruesome.—Richelle Roth, Boone County Public Library, KY
