Interesting twists and turns in this novelette. It's not the usual take. A really enjoyable read if somewhat dark in spots. I do recommend it

5.0 out of 5 stars True horror with no blood, gore or sex, April 12, 2015
If you want today's typical horror, don't read this one. Today's horror is so overblown with blood, gore, spewing entrails, heads lopped off, graphic sex scenes that you miss the actual horror of the situation. Shirley Jackson didn't write that kind of horror. Hers is the sweet, seemingly innocent horror that suddenly punches you in the stomach, not with blood or sex but with the realization that something really really scary has just happened, even if we don't know what the hell is was. This is her best novel and, in my opinion, the only absolutely perfect haunted house story ever written. If you want to be disgusted, keep reading King, Straub and the rest of the modern writers. They can be good, but the blood and gore is always close at hand. If you want true fear, read this novel.

A really cute book to introduce the Elder Gods to our children. The poems are short and easy to understand and the pictures are wonderful. My 4 year old grandson loves this book. Highly recommended for totally warping your child or grandchild.
