This was by far my most favorite horror graphic novel to date. Emily Carroll’s folk tales and illustrations weave a thread of anxiety and unease as you turn the pages. Some stories are definitely more frightening than others, particularly “The Nesting Place” which I made the mistake of reading just before bed. A few images could be labeled as downright grotesque, but are tame in comparison to most horror-related graphic novels. The coloring is utterly beautiful and each page is stylized to unite each story within an overall aesthetic. If you’re looking for fairy-tales gone very, very wrong you won’t be disappointed with this quick read.
