Book review: Cautionary Tales for Children, Hilaire Belloc/Edward Gorey
Another of Gorey's macabre little books, this was originally written by Hilaire Belloc. Edward Gorey's Victorian-esque drawings are perfectly suited for these morbid tales of the consequences of disobedience. For example, there's the story of "Jim, Who ran away from his nurse and was eaten by a lion."
For those with a twisted sense of humor (such as myself), very enjoyable.
