Edward Gorey-The Gashlycrumb Tinies

The Gashlycrumb Tinies is one of my favorite books to read during these days just before Halloween:)  (click on the image below for the full book…if you dare!)


N is for Neville who died of ennui.


  1. Not “S is for Susan who perished of fits” 🙂 Amazing that this book was published in 1962. I remember being so “done in” by this book, I hid it under my bed and pulled it out at the weirdest moments – just for the thrill.

  2. I would love to perish from fits:) My family can attest to those…hee hee…

    But the word ennui fascinates me…much more meloncholy…

    Yes, even putting this on my blog I have had some reservations…what in the world is the attraction???? But…the idea of death and dying is always around…and fascinating as well.

  3. Disturbing yet cute. I never thought those two words would go together so well when describing something.

    Thanks for sharing – I read the whole book. I’ve never seen it! I may have to purchase……


  4. I used to have a poster with the entire Gashlycrumb Tinies alphabet hanging in my apartment in Chicago.
