really liked it

this alphabet book was almost reminiscent of that tim burton book for kids in that it picks up on a darker mood, but in my opinion it was done much better than tim burton’s. it was about these two kids who go on an adventure in some sort of sewer and come across these monsters who want to do bad things to the kids, but they escape by the end. the book rhymes and there’s one line per page, which is accompanied by a great illustration depicting the rhyme. the illustrations match the overall mood of the book, and an example can be seen on the cover. i don’t know if it’s for young children, though i’d try anyways as everything is so white washed nowadays and anything not max and ruby sets your heart racing. it was well done though.
