Through the Woods

Emily Carroll 2014

This is most definitely NOT a children's book.  But my teenagers loved it, especially Madeleine who is drawn to graphic novels.  The artwork is wonderful and appropriately grotesque at times.  The stories themselves are perfectly creepy, like folk tales gone disturbingly wrong.  Though Madeleine and I disagreed on which ones were scarier ("His Face all Red" gave me the shivers and "Our Neighbor's House" was the most haunting).  For those with macabre tastes this is a must read for Halloween.
