I found these stories creepy and unnerving. Even though I read them in the full sun out on my balcony, I still felt on edge as if something was going to jump out and get me. I loved every page turning bit of it.

This graphic novel of horror stories is deliciously creepy and sinister. The art is gorgeous and the stories themselves are well written. I definitely got a traditional Gothic vibe from several of these stories.

A fantastic graphic novel of short horror stories. This book made Emily Carroll one of my favorite authors/illustrators.

Beautiful and bone chilling original stories.

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."

"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."
