Through the Woods by Emily Carroll

Five short illustrated stories about ghoulies and ghosties and things that go bump in the night.

Kid stuff? Not exactly.

Some stories are creepy. Some are grotesque. Some are creepy and gross and eerie and weird.

As a confirmed chickenheart, I advocate reading this beautiful, awful, wonderful, disgusting, macabre collection well before bedtime. (In my case, maybe three or four days before bedtime would be best.)

Supercool, and extremely weird. Highly recommended, but not for chickenhearts.

The events may not have happened; still, the story is true.  --R. Silvern
