If as a child you devoured "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" or "Goosebumps", this Young Adult graphic novel will take you to the next, darker level. Mystical, creepy, and beautiful, this graphic novel represents the best of its genre and shows what the medium can really do. The art here isn't just eye-catching or good, it's magnificent -- a word I don't use lightly. It's moody and unsettling to flip through this collection of fairytales retold. The expressive illustrations show some things and keep other things hidden, allowing your imagination to run wild through a dark ominous fog of the unknown. It is truly one of the most unique horror books on the YA shelf. Read this immediately. In one sitting. In the dark. By a window. Alone.
