WOAH! This was a lot darker than I was expecting! Like the brain child of Stephen King & Wes Craven this is some warped, disturbing stuff! Amazing gothic, macabre illustrations that made my skin crawl. Fantastic! #scarathlon #teamstoker

Read this graphic novel story collection last night with the dim glow of amber fairy lights, the candle, and just my booklight. Some great stories, but I think my favorite was “His Face All Red”. Quick and spooky pick for Halloween.

esurient Oh gosh I had loved this one. I need to pick up more of her works. 1mo
Palimpsest @esurient This was my first time reading a book by Emily Carroll, but I‘ll definitely be looking for others. I picked it up because it was on display at my library. So glad I did! 1mo
esurient I found her early webcomics first and had been just amazed. Her art for 'The Prince and the Sea' was particularly well-suited for the webview medium -- ditto with that one scene in 'His Face...', climbing down. 1mo
esurient ...er, as the character was climbing, I-the-reader was scrolling, and it gave an excellent seat-of-your-pants thrill. 1mo

This book was okay, but I wanted more somehow (and not in a good way). I adore the illustrations, and the stories started off really well but then they just sort of stop and I‘m left disappointed. #screamathon

Definitely falling in love with Emily Carroll's gothic horror fairy tale style, regardless of whether she's writing for kids, teens, or adults. This collection of short stories (suitable for teens and up) is genuinely great. I didn't dislike a single one, and a couple of them really knocked my socks off. Definitely enjoying for the season as well.

CoffeeCatsBooks I loved this one too. I gave it as a gift to several people. 1mo
elizabethlk @CoffeeCatsBooks Nice! I think I'm the last of most of my friends to get into this since the author is local. 1mo

I‘m going to be honest, I do not understand why everyone seems so wowed by this book. The illustrations are quite good, the colors and images setting the perfect eerie tone, but the stories found within...could have been better. The story about the body parts in the wall, if written as a novella rather than a graphic short story, would have been better. ⬇

LibrarianRyan I think the author could have upped the creepy factor and had the readers at the end of their seats. The girls in the house in the woods, has lovely artwork, but the story goes nowhere. I feel these are creepy stories for a younger audience, but I feel it does not do enough. It‘s almost there, but not quite.

Weird and scary tales in graphic novel format. I loved all the stories. The only thing i did not like were the illustrations. Normally that would make me bail on a graphic novel but the stories hooked me in. 2 1/2 stars

Before the holidays, my friend and I checked out Our Daily Nada, a "boozy bookstore" in Kansas City with a small but I thought well-curated section of books. We enjoyed cocktails and fancy toast at the bar and I bought the tagged book. There's also a nice little kids space in the back and a family with the cutest toddler visited while I was there; she excitedly ran straight for the books. ?

I couldn't decide on a page to take a picture of to really sell this book. I really love every page, even the two that happened to guess my worst nightmare. They're stories that you think about after reading, and then you read again and again...
I was pleasantly surprised to find in the little about the author section that Emily Carroll lives with her wife and large orange cat. I'd like to know the cat's name, and I hope they're having a good day.

This was a pretty awesome graphic novel. It was a quick read but super creepy and absorbing. The illustrations absolutely captured the stories and completed them. And although it was fast paced/short - it really lingers when you‘re done.

“It came from the woods. Most strange things do.”

5 creepily imaginative stories about the eeriness of the woods that will stay with you long after you‘ve read them.

Highly recommended!!!!

Looooved this book! The stories were actually scarier than I would like to admit 😁 And the drawings are just beautiful, with a Victorian air but also very modern (I caught glimpses of present-day animation style, for example like Adventure Time).
100% recommended.

The artwork is stronger than the verbal narrative in these five macabre (rather than scary) and unresolved tales. That's not necessarily a criticism, merely an observation. I found that the effect was to sharpen my appetite rather than satisfy it. I want more!
