Author(s): Edward Gorey (Illustrator)
The cult book by Edward Gore, the genius who inspired Tim Burton, Neil Gaiman and Guillermo Del Toro. The Gashlycrumb Tinies is a rhyming alphabet unlike any other: melancholy, strange and quite phantasmagorically witty. A is for AMY who fell down the stairs B is for BASIL assaulted by bears C is for CLARA who wasted away... ... and so it goes on, an A to Z of poor little orphans and their untimely ends. Right up to ZILLAH, who drank too much gin. This edition of the book comes in a special slipcase with ribbon.
