The children in this book have such strong dark circles I originally thought that they were an elderly brother/sister duo. This is the perfect book for your child who is simultaneously goth and a minimalist.— Lexi
Edward Gorey (1925-2000) wrote and illustrated such popular books as The Doubtful Guest, The Gashlycrumb Tinies, and The Headless Bust. He was also a very successful set and costume designer, earning a Tony Award for his Broadway production of Edward Gorey's Dracula. Animated sequences of his work have introduced the PBS series Mystery! since 1980.
