The book is not gory at all. Sure it mentions eating children and such, but look at Hansel & Grettle or the Three Bears! Ah well. I highly recommend this book for anyone, child or adult, who enjoys fun, creepy poetry and bleak, haunted illustrations. Wish I'd found this book when I was a kid. I'd have loved it!
Thank You. --C. M. Kallenberger
I used to check both books out every single week one year when I was in elementary school (and I'm happy to learn that these books have meant so much to other people as well). One day as I was re-checking one of the books for the millionth time, the mean old librarian muttered "What are you DOING with these books?!?". So it not only gives me great enjoyment to learn that I have found these scary, delightful books after all these years....but also that after all these years, that mean old librarian is probably now a wretched old wraith like the monsters in the book.
So what am I doing with these books??? I'm ENJOYING THEM!!!
