The drawings in this book are fantastic and the story is grisly and adorable at the same time. Great for adults who enjoy good art and funny little stories. Or mature children. A is for Alice who fell down the stairs . . .

The depths of my love for this book know no bounds - superbly macabre and very funny.

This is a small, dark gem. Morbid, macabre and yet not coldhearted. The poem is simple (in all but the occasional choice of a wonderfully obscure word, the Gorey trademark) but memorable, and the illustrations show great technical skill coupled with a sharp eye for arrangements. Can anyone look at Neville and not feel his bottomless (and apparently quite fatal) ennui in their heart?Not for everyone, though...

Can we talk about my undying adoration and obsession with Edward Gorey. My sister got this for me. How she knew I loved his work but own none of it and needed it to complete my being I will never know. If I owned many animals I would name each of them after the Tinies.

It has dawned on me that Edward Gorey stole all of my good ideas. Before I ever had them.
