Mr. B's Emporium of Reading Delights in Bath provided me with a copy of EG's Gashlycrumb Tinies, and lived up to their tagline as the assistant and I had a lovely talk about Gorey, creepy kids books and unnerving children's TV programmes of the '70s. I'm loving Bath's book culture ❤📚😊

Leftcoastzen Wonderful! I would love to go to Bath! 8mo
Bookwomble @Leftcoastzen It has a wonderful feel of history about it, spanning the pre-Roman Celtic, Roman, Medieval, Georgian, Victorian and modern, all within a compact city. As a Northerner, I'm appalled by the property prices, so no chance of moving here! 8mo
Leftcoastzen My mind is blown thinking how fascinating all those influences mixed together would be! 8mo
Aimeesue I would tell you what I think of Gorey, but I have fallen down the stairs. 8mo
Bookwomble @Aimeesue I trust the consequences will not be fatal 😊 8mo

I've loved this book for so long since I learned about it in college. Not exactly roses and sunshine but always something that me and my nan always sniggered about. Great little book-a bit grim for those not used to that sort of thing but an A-Z of death is the easiest way of putting it with a twist.....

VioletBramble Neville is my favorite 10mo

“A is for Amy who fell down the stairs. B is for Basil assaulted by bears. C is for Clara who wasted away. D is for Desmond thrown out a sleigh....”
I love this mock alphabet book focusing on children dying in various ways! Edward Gorey‘s text and illustrations are an absolute delight! As long as you don‘t mind a bit of morbid humor in your reading, this book is sure to please you!

VioletBramble I love this book. N is my favorite. 13mo

In memory of Sue Grafton, who's alphabet series was inspired by Edward Gorey's Gashlycrumb tinies. RIP.

TheKidUpstairs I had no idea that was the inspiration! I love Gorey 😁 2y
Lcsmcat I didn‘t know that either, and my family loves that book! 2y

@Mcclujdd and I went to the Edward Gorey House for our anniversary ❤️ We got a prize for finding all of the perished Gashlycrumb Tinies! 😜

hgrimes That is AWESOME!! I loooove the Gorey house, but I haven't been there in over a decade. I think I will go back soon now that I'm back in the state. 2y
annkuch13 I didn't know this was a place you could visit. Definitely going on my bucket list! 2y
Betty_Bookworm @annkuch13 it's the house he lived in when he died. Parts of it (the kitchen) are left exactly as they were his last day. 2y
Betty_Bookworm My mother in law used to love in Yarmouth right down the road, so I would go every time we visited her! We also go to Provincetown every year so I usually stop by there to see what's being exhibited. 2y

Was the dad reading The Gashlycrumb Tinies by the magnificent Edward Gorey to the twins last night on Big Little Lies, or was I dreaming?

My daughter loved this book (it still lives at her bedside - and she is 18) when friend questioned me on letting my child read such a macabre book - my daughter responded "Someone should have taught Rhoda to stop drop and roll." #riotgrams #FavoriteChildrensBook

LeahBergen Ha!! I love this book, too. 3y

I performed this book as part of a Forensics piece that got me into Nationals my senior year of High School. A delightful, dark and twisted alphabet by one of my favorite authors.

For today's #octphotochallenge of #disastrouskids I'm picking The Gashlycrumb Tinies by #EdwardGorey . I love his drawings and, in this book, all of the children meet disastrous ends.

LeahBergen 😂😂 Great pick! This book is brilliant. 3y
ElizabethAndino A work of pure genius 3y

Some days, there is nothing wrong, but you're pushing through molasses to move from one task to the next. Those are the days you just want to stop, but you keep going so that you don't end up like Neville.

Today was like that.
