This is a must-read for horror fans! It's a horror book AND a graphic novel!

This creepy selection of disturbing old-style faerie tales will cast a bitter chill deep in your bones. But don't read it late at night because you'll start to imagine hideously deformed monsters slithering in the shadows at the end of your bed, just beyond reach of your bedside light.

A beautiful story with breathtaking art that weaves seamlessly into the stories. I devoured each story with gusto. My only complaint would be that many of the stories end on the same note of "and all was well.... OR WAS IT?!?!?!" which, when you're ripping through the book, can make the endings seem a little tired. Which is a shame, since endings are so important. But don't let that scare you away! This book is a must read for anyone who enjoys horror, fairy tales or beautiful art. 10/10 would read again and again.

"My Friend Janna" and "The Nesting Place" are especially unsettling.

The stories are lackluster, but the art is fantastic. Quick and spooky tales to read on an October night.

A wonderful collection of stories with a beautiful art style. The stories are written almost poetically but all have at least one creepy one liner that will make your spine tingle. The neutral colored pictures are greeted with vibrant reds when particularly spooky things occur. Truly a brilliant series of short stories! (I'll definitely be adding this one to my own collection at home.) side note: my favorite story was "His Face All Red."

These are the kind of gruesome stories you tell around a campfire. The illustrations are both delicate and unnerving. Keep the lights on!

A perfect example of subtle horror.

Deliciously terrifying thru and thru. Especially the final complete story and the very end of the overall book; this is a must-read for anyone who loves horrific takes on folklore, classic and new.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Not suitable for children under 14. Gore and disturbing plot.

"Oh, but you must travel through those woods again and again," said a shadow at the window, "and you must be lucky to avoid the wolf every time. But the wolf . . . the wolf only needs enough luck to find you once."
