Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

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 END

I own several Poe books, but they are all big and bulky. This is a great size and filled with some of my favorite reads. Not to mention, that the illustrations are gorgeous and add nice visual detail to the short stories!

This book is great! It has beautiful and creepy illustrations on each page by Grimly along with Poe's writings. It's a good book to read with school age children for the Halloween season or for teenagers and up who will appreciate the cheeky accompanying artwork. Very cute in a creepy way!

Who doesn't love Poe? Who doesn't love Gris Grimly? Put them together and wow! what a combo!!! I had the pleasure of meeting Gris Grimly at a book signing for one of his very rare East Coast appearances. I just really love his style of art, so when I found out about this book coming out, I immediately knew I had to purchase it. You won't be disappointed.

Ok... WOW! Have been a Poe fan for a while, and thought I had every version and adaptation of Poe stuff. This is a high quality book, with high gloss dust jacket AND hard cover imagery! Going to use this in my high-school classroom, and think it will be a big hit!

This book is amazing! I have another book, similar illustrations with different works by Poe. I just love how the two men completely flow and compliment each other in the books.
