Meet Lenore the cute little dead girl, and enter her weird,
surreal world of cursed vampire dolls, crazed clock monsters,
stuffed friends, limbless cannibals and an obsessed would-be
lover. All this, plus more fuzzy animal mutilations than you
can poke a stick at...
introduces the world's cutest little dead girl, Lenore. The
best way of describing this collection is to imagine the late
Roald Dahl teaming up again with Quentin Blake and writing
stories for a slightly more mature market than his children's
is dead and her world is slightly warped because of this.
She also has a boyfriend, of sorts. Mr. Gosh just doesn't
get the fact that Lenore is just not interested in him. Every
time she thinks she's killed him he finds another way to come
back and attempt to woo her.
was one story in here that made me laugh out loud... but I
don't know why. The Grandiose Adventures of "Timmy"
the Happy Friendly Seeing Impaired Mouse just kind of
caught me off guard and I ended up laughing to myself for
be honest though, there isn't a bad tale here. Other stand
out tales include Lenore's Scientific Don't Even Question
it Facts, which examines the world's most sadistic toys;
The 'Lil Ballerina, in which Lenore practices her ballet
moves at an inappropriate moment; The Boy With His Heart
in a Box, which is the most Roald Dahl like of tales and
revolves around a boy who's heart is kept under lock and key
by his grandfather; Leap Froggie, which warns of the
dangers when choosing a spot to play you favourite game; and
Magic Muffin, which sees a magic fairy arrive on earth
for a magical day of wonderment.
of the charm of this collection is the fact that the tiniest
little thing will set you off chuckling to yourself... and
it's at that point that you realise what a sick puppy you
really are. Everyone
should get to know this little dead girl.
