Out of Print now has Edward Gorey!!! ❤️🥳🎉
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 ❤📚😊
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.....

“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!
In memory of Sue Grafton, who's alphabet series was inspired by Edward Gorey's Gashlycrumb tinies. RIP.
@Mcclujdd and I went to the Edward Gorey House for our anniversary ❤️ We got a prize for finding all of the perished Gashlycrumb Tinies! 😜
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
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.
