      Odd, creepy illustrations for poems for children. Dirge, who also wrote Lenore: The Cute Little Dead Girl (which I still haven’t yet read) says “This is a collection of children's tales for disturbed children.” Ha! Nice.This guy is working in the same macabre territory and seems to be inspired by Edward Gorey, but this work seems definitely younger. It actually feels more like Tim Burton territory. The drawings are cute and strange, and the poems are pretty good, often worth a few smiles. [...]

    • This was amazing.

    • I loved this book, it was a super light read. It was so funny but a bit dark i guess. Its just a bunch of short stories and super spookie. I think its an amazing book and I cannot wait to read more of Roman Dirge!

    • Bizarrely funny! Nice, creepy illustrations!

    • This escapes 1 star for me only because of the artwork. The writing was not scary, not interestingly weird, and aggressively forced into (frequently poorly constructed) verse.

    • This book is just as good as the Cat with the Really Big Head. The poems are cute and fun.

    • Eh, an A for effort.In truth, I never did expect much from this book - I picked it up for its Tim Burton-esque nature (and also the fact that the Tim Burton book that I initially spied in the shop and wanted was about 3 times the price). I found myself being more interested in the author than the actually content of the book itself. The foreward is slightly rambling but I liked it, and found myself liking the author too. I also really enjoyed reading in the back of the book that he is really inf [...]

    • I kind of wish that these typs of morbin books had been around when I was a kid, besides the classic Gashlycrumb Tinies, because they are absolutely delightful. Not in the typical way, obviously, but for someone who appreciates a twisted sense of humou, these poems are absolutely hilarious. Dirge doesn't quite nail it with every poem (the pirate squid only got a few lines, com on, there's totally an epic waiting there!), but he definitely has the skill to place among the Edward Goreys and Tim Bu [...]

    • I haven't read anything by Roman Dirge before, and I'd heard of "Lenore". I thought this was quite witty, and I enjoyed the art style. I thought the poems were witty and hilarious, Sounds about right for this genre, which I thoroughly enjoy. Cute quick read if you like stuff like this.

    • Just think of it as Shel Silverstein writes for goth teenagers. - Jessica, Adult ServicesReserve a library copy.

    • Next up for Readathon!I love Dirge and his wonderful creepiness!

    • Just think of it as Shel Silverstein writes for goth teenagers.

    • This book was incredibly cute. I enjoyed it a lot, much like all of Roman Dirge's work.

      I discovered this on my bookshelves It must be 10 years since I last read it.

    • I would have enjoyed this way more if it was not digitally 'remastered'. Still quite the fun read.

    • Great creepy illustrations and the stories match ranging from disturbing to hilarious- definitely inspired by Edward Gorey

    • Great! The kids loved it as did I but it finished too quickly and it did cost a pretty penny, so we were hoping for a tad bit more

    • LOVE Roman Dirge! It was neat to see Ragamuffin in one of the little stories.

    • Really darkly humorous poems. If you like Tim Burton and Edward Gorey, this will appeal to you. I first came across Dirge's work in his comic book series, "Lenore," and he's just a riot.

      Super fast, super fun, kind of creepy read.

    • The book had the same dark humor as all of dirge's other books and i thought the scene where the boy tells his parents about the sandman's son is his new pet was really funny.
