I don’t remember what I was searching for when I originally found this. To be honest, I don’t think I want to remember considering the subject matter!
This is an illustrated alphabet book written by Edward Gorey in 1963. The Gashlycrumb Tinies, poetically describes the death of twenty-six children–this is very morbid indeed.
I don’t think the author of this book was very fond of children…either that, or he had a very sick and twisted sense of humor.
I will have to do some research on Edward Gorey to understand the context of the book!
