It is worth noting that although it is a picture book, some of the imagery and definitely the Poe stories themselves are graphic, so maybe don't cuddle up with your five year old with this one.... Older kids, especially these days, should have no problem.
The story starts with people who were having a masquerade at Prince Prospero's house. Each hour the clock chimed. At the 12th chime a person in a red cape came out of the clock and frightened everyone at the masquerade. Prince Prospero tried to kill him but the Prince died when he saw his face. Then, anyone who saw his face or dared to enter the red blood shot room died by bleeding to death. Will anyone survive? You will have to read it yourself to find out.
I though all of the stories in the book were scary and cool. I also thought the illustrations by Chris Grimley were very creative. I would recommend for anyone who likes horror to read this book.

Absolutely fabulous. I would not hesitate to recommend this book.
P.S. As a side note, I purchased this used and was not aware that it came from a library that was no longer lending it out. The book came full of library stamps and identification marks. I had purchased it as a gift and ended up keeping it for myself on account of these obvious markings. I understand that you get what you get with a gently used book, but I wish I had known about the markings.
