Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By LilyBook on August 21, 2014
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Three things about this book:
1. Witty, sometimes biting, always brilliant writing by Felicia Lamport.
2. Simply marvelous, fantastic illustrations by Edward Gorey.*
3. Nothing more needs to be said about it. Read it for your pleasure.

* Disclaimer: I am a rabid fan of Gorey. He could draw a line and I would praise his brilliance.

1 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Simon Barrett on January 12, 2013
Format: Hardcover
Claims its place on my shelf not for the ho-hum Gorey but for these wry lines

Many a new little life is begot
By the hibited man with the prompu plot

and, nearly as good

The iquitous girl often loses her balance
When wooed by a man with unusual chalance

- but do Americans really pronounce the second syllable of forsythia (named for William Forsyth) to rhyme with myth?
