Read from May 04 to 11, 2011

The artwork is great & is representative of Gorey's style and sense of humor. The artwork is complemented by his writing, which is twisted and darkly humorous. Gorey shows children meeting untimely, and in some cases gruesome, demises. I also liked the slightly pornographic one, which is not as descriptive as it at first sounds.

I especially loved "The West Wing." It is a surreal story told through pictures that takes one through an old house with secret rooms and strange going-ons.

This is indeed a picture book for adults and those who love good artwork and the bizarre.
