The Horribles world is anything but usual. Carolyn Watson Dubisch is the author and illustrator of six children's books which includes the award winnng book for `Best All-ages Comic of 2010,' The People That Melt in the Rain, as well at this modern goth-style fairy tale, The Horribles. This is a story full of dark comedy everyone will enjoy and on par with Monsters Inc with a touch of the Addam's Family and charming textured drawings. I loved following The Horribles and their pets around their quirky neighborhood. The daughter, Sylvia, is "bewitching" and not as sweet as she looks. Maude and Roddy's lives definitely change for the better with Creature under the bed. The cat, Remus has to lug a huge bell around his neck. While the teacher insists that you might be `too clean' to be in her class. And just why take the long way home through the bad part of town where no one should roam? I enjoyed reading this book and couldn't put it down. I had forgotten how much fun satirical humor is to read. Sometimes it's much easier to live in a crazy world than the `usual.' ~ JD Holiday
Full of humor and crazy characters "The Horribles" is a series you'll want to take the time to read. My daughter shared the graphic novel with me and since then I've been hooked. The black and white illustrations are nicely done though I do wish it was in color. Still I think most kids will love it!
