"Lemon Bee and Other Peculiar Tales" is a collection of haunting short stories featuring elements of wondrous fantasy and gothic horror, redeemed by messages of hope. Patricia Lynn Dompieri's tales capture the surreal logic of dreams. Featuring keen perceptions shaped by fears and desires, these richly written narratives mix eerie imagery with insightful commentary. Poetic and descriptive, charged with deep symbolism and nightmarish elements, the stories make you think as well as shudder. The characters described reach revelations that put a new perspective on life. The intensely imaginative and unpredictable storytelling is enhanced by mysterious illustrations by Michele Bledsoe.

This book of alternative tales belongs on every bookshelf. A mix of fantasy and unexpected eeriness, readers of all ages are in for an unexpected treat.
Creepy and vivid, I couldn't put this strange little book of stories down. Ive read it over and over. Better than a book of ghost stories or fairy tales.
