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!

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.

Awesome and surprisingly chilling!

I love everything about this book! It’s a collection of short horror stories, based - with varying degrees of fidelity – on classic folklore. Carroll’s illustrations are striking, with strong black-and-white foundations given depth through the judicious use of bold primary colours.

And the stories! The stories are fabulously creepy in the particular way that folkloric themes often encourage, drawing as they do on strangely primordial, instinctive human fears. I honestly can’t recommend this book enough.

Fun collection of short stories reminiscent of the old Creepshow movies.
Artwork adds to the storytelling. Many of the panels emphasize things that create some unease adding to the mood.
After some discussion in book club, the first story was looked at carefully for symbolism and, without giving it away, the first story may be heavier than on first pass.
Fun read.

A fun batch of short horror stories. Very well written with good art. Some were more scary than others but overall it was a fun physiological horror read.

I got this book and enjoyed the crap out of it, show I showed it to my sister. She enjoyed it too. I also let my one friend borrow it and she also relly enjoyed. I really like all the artstyles Emily Carroll does. The art just makes it a million times more creepy. All the endings for the story were a "WHAT IN THE FREAKING WORLD JUST HAPPEN" type of ending. You have to read this if you creepy stuff. P.S. It also reminded me of Secret of Wysteria.

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."
