In Stock: Ships the Next Business Day

A happy, naive family enters the Evil Garden (free admission!) to spend a sunny afternoon in its inviting landscape, lush with exotic trees and flowers. They soon realize their mistake, as harrowing sounds and evidence of foul play emerge. When humongous hairy bugs, famished carnivorous plants, ferocious fruit-guarding bears, and a sinister strangling snake take charge, the familyÕs ominous feelings turn to full-on panicÑbut whereÕs the exit?

Edward Gorey leads us through this nefarious garden with a light step. His unmistakable drawings paired with engaging couplets produce giggles, not gasps. Perhaps The Evil Garden is a morality tale; perhaps itÕs simply an enigmatic entertainment. Whatever the interpretation, itÕs a prime example of the iconic storytelling genius that is Edward Gorey.

A long-out-of-print short masterpiece by Edward Gorey.

Hardcover smyth-sewn casebound book, with jacket. 32 pages. Size: 6 x 6 inches.
