What's lurking under the bed? Who's casting that shadow outside my window? Common questions children ask themselves in the dead of night. But what if, instead of those rather innocuous queries, the child asks things like: What's inside this bunny that makes him move? What if I put a raisin in a dead man's nose? If I leave the paw of a deceased mole in the sun, will it grow

Nice and creepy in a darkly cute kind of way. Worth reading even if it's just for the great drawings of an angry raccoon eating someone's face. More books need angry raccoons in them!!

Recommends it for: lovers of the macabre, queasy or just plain peculiar
There is nothing I know of that is quite like Renee French. Her output is poised somewhere between David Lynch and Tobe Hooper, but portrayed in a style closer to children's-book illustration than what might be typical of comics similar to hers (of which there are VERY few).
I've been following her bizarre, entrancing work since the first time I saw it, so this book was a wonderful (if superfluous) addition to my library. It collects pretty much everything that had been published of French up to
At first I was disgusted then intrigued then genuinely impressed. Some of these are SO twisted. But I really really liked the last comic, Corny's Fetish." On a whole, very experimental in form, some great artwork.
Such good disturbing little things like eggs on... but most of all I like the line... "Do it!!!" {Splunk}...
Good wholesome stuff.
Just about the most disturbing comics I can imagine reading. Cute, sad, horrifying and lonely little creatures populate these pages.

A collection of Renee French's wonderfully disturbing comics. A very uneasy read. Perfect for traumatizing kids and traumatized adults.
Beautifully disturbing. Another 'must have' if you are into graphic novels.
