Overview

Creepy Susie: And 13 Other Tragic Tales for Troubled Children by Angus Oblong

Creepy Susie. Mary Had a Little Chainsaw. Milo's Disorder. Rosie's Crazy Mother. The Siamese Quadruplets. Emily Amputee.

Your mother never told you these stories.

She didn't want to scare you.

But Angus Oblong is not your mother.

If Edgar Allan Poe and David Lynch wrote a book, it might be as warped, wicked, and perversely funny as this treasury of twisted tales from childhood's Twilight Zone. So don't be alarmed if you find yourself screaming . . . with laughter . . . until the day you die. Which may be very soon . . .

About the Author

Angus Oblong is legally insane and an avid collector of dead trees that clutter his tiny unlit studio apartment. His fascination with physical deformities stems from the fact that a living, movable right hand is growing from the center of his back. Otherwise, he is perfectly normal.

I thought this was an adorable book, but not really for children, unless you don't mind exposing your kids to the darker side of life.

Absolutely Hysterical! Definitely NOT for the little ones. But all you adults with a warped sense of humor will love it.

Angus Oblong is a funny dude, this book is fantastic. Ostentatiously weird and morbid, with wonderful, simple line drawings. Aside to mad mom: Maybe not for a nine year old, but it's fine for a thirteen year old. My thirteen year old and I both loved this book.

Rather than being a children's book (which I think this listing should clear up... hint hint, I can empathize with the reviewer below) this is definitely for older teens to adult readers. It's HILARIOUS, it's violent, it's crude and it's like what Jhonen Vasquez dreams about. But, like the woman below me apparently didn't get, it is NOT for kids. Never intended for them. If you've got a wicked sense of humor and you're over 13 years old, sure, buy it. Just keep it out of your ''mad mom''s sight for the next five years.

I don't know how I got the wrong idea about this book, but it is definitely NOT for middle aged children it would be rated NC17 if it were a movie. The 'F' word appears on page 100, the ideas are disgusting, and just pereverted. Somehow when I was shopping on the B&N website, I was made to feel it was a 'fun-creepy' read for the Halloween season for my 9 & 13 yr olds...NOT!!! it's trash, and I plan to return it immediately.
