Gorey is one of the most strangest illustrators I know of. And the greatest. If you are a fan of his work, make sure to pick this one up!

One of the epiphanies of my life occurred in 1959, when, at the age of 12, I discovered a boxed set of Edward Gorey's books.

One of them was The Wuggly Ump, about a horrible monster that travels a great distance just to devour several 'innocent' children. (We know they're innocent because they eat 'wholesome bowls of bread & milk' and play harmless games.)

It was wonderful.

Not only was it nasty, it was a slap at middle-class bourgeois sensibilities. What was there not to love?
