Edward Gorey

My six-year-old daughter recently discovered my Edward Gorey collection.  She’s fascinated with the art work and morbid tales.  At story time, she’ll thumb through my books before selecting something particularly gruesome.

She’ll ask, “Mommy, does this one have a bad ending?”

“They’re all pretty grim, sweetie.”

“Good.  I want this one!”


  1. I like pretty creepy tales myself, so it’s difficult to compare. My oldest definitely has a taste for horror. I’m not sure if it’s typical, or if she’s just her mother’s daughter.
