Read full description of the books I dodici incubi del Natale:Aaaaaa! So much to fear!
From the tree -
At night, you can hear it rustling and slurping water out of the bucket.
To the big man himself -
If he's such a big shot, why is he drawing unemployment for eleven months of the year?
Not to mention those sinister elves, tick-covered reindeer, shopping for, giving, receiving and returning gifts - the torture never stops!
Though Updike has never been funnier, the absolute highlight of this little gift book is Gorey's art. His people, creepy and green in the gills -
with dark circles under their eyes and their pained, worried expressions . . .
Could there be a better illustration for the agony that is Christmas?
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
