This is a useful and instructive manual, a necessity to any well-stocked library, and possibly the most inappropriate graduation gift since the Sex and the City box set. (Jezebel.com)
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; and 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.
Mel Juffe was an editor, writer, correspondent, and teacher at the New York Journal-American, the New York Post, Radio Free Europe, and New York University.

Although much of Edward Gorey's work is hilarious, this work by Mel Juffe (illustrated by Gorey) was not particularly outstanding in my book. Read morePublished 10 months ago by sally tarbox
"Offbeat humor" is a perfect description. Worth adding to my small collection of Gory's books. Not good for someone's first introduction. Wonderfully dry and unsentimental.Published 15 months ago by cris
Perfect book to give your nieces going off to college or just graduating high school. Silly and witty at the same time.Published 21 months ago by Gritty Kitty
I bought this as a Christmas present for my future daughter-in-law, LOL! But I couldn't help sneaking a quick peek first! Read morePublished 22 months ago by DJ
Love the oddness of the topic and artwork. The book is very small. If you're an Edward Gorey fan you will love this.Published on May 12, 2013 by aMapola
It is okay but not one that I will keep forever. Amusing but not hilarious. Nice typical Edward Gorey illustration though.Published on April 11, 2013 by Amazon Customer
I love Edward Gorey's illustrations. This book is great for a gift...sweet sixteen or something like that. Very quirky, dark humored...Just how I like my Gorey!Published on April 4, 2013 by Aliza Gans
