Edward GoreyÕs mordant masterpiece The Wuggly Ump charts the fate of three wholesome children whose happy days weaving chains of flowers are cut short when the mysterious Wuggly Ump hurtles from its den in search of tasty tots. Set to deceptively pleasant rhymes and illustrated in GoreyÕs inimitable style, this lighthearted and mildly unsettling cautionary tale has delighted legions of Gorey fans since its first publication in 1963. This brand-new edition is a faithful reproduction for old and new fans alike to treasure.

In addition to writing and illustrating more than one hundred books, the renowned artist Edward Gorey (1925-2000) was also a playwright, an award-winning set and costume designer, and the creator of the animated introduction to the PBS series Mystery!

32 pages with 14 color illustrations. Smyth-sewn casebound book with jacket. Size: 6 x 5".
