Aunt Grizelda’s Treasury of Grim and Grisly Rhymes will make you grin, grimace and gain gruesome lessons about the perils of modern life.
Aunt Grizelda (Grizelda Schwarz, born October 31st, 1832, in Transylvania) graduated with a degree in Lycanthropy from Kreep University, worked as a journalist for The Zombie Times and then the women's magazine Haunted Homes, and now freelances from a Yorkshire Moors belfry, where she lives with her pet wolfhounds Fang and Baskerville, her bat Squeaky, and her serpents Bella and Donna. Here she shares, in verse form, helpful tales of children who've made such dreadful mistakes as playing with lighters, looking at their smart phones instead of at traffic, playing too many computer games, and eating bugs.
