What happens when a dramatic six-year-old gets as far as “N is for Neville” in The Gashleycrumb Tinies?
Find out, why don’t you.
I have sworn up and down that I am using that book as my progeny’s first introduction to the alphabet. (Neville and Xerxes are my favourites.)
If it were that easy, Gen X would be gone by now. Also Y I suppose.
Ennui? In that outfit? Nevah!!!!!!!!
OK, everyone else seems fine with this, so I’ll be the one to come out & say it: What the @#$^&! is that book? Nightmare in a box?
“Look honey – 26 ways you can die a horrible death! Sleep tight…”
Are you kidding? The Gashleycrumb Tinies are awesome. Clearly, not for every kid. But Athena handles the macabre remarkably well.
