A happy, naive family enters the Evil Garden (free admission!) to spend a sunny afternoon in its inviting landscape, lush with exotic trees and flowers. They soon realize their mistake, as harrowing sounds and evidence of foul play emerge. When humongous hairy bugs, famished carnivorous plants, ferocious fruit-guarding bears, and a sinister strangling snake take charge, the family''s ominous feelings turn to full-on panic but where''s the exit?

Edward Gorey leads us through this nefarious garden with a light step. His unmistakable drawings paired with engaging couplets produce giggles, not gasps. Perhaps "The Evil Garden" is a morality tale; perhaps it''s simply an enigmatic entertainment. Whatever the interpretation, it''s a prime example of the iconic storytelling genius that is Edward Gorey.

Expert Review The Evil Garden by Edward Gorey - Book Review
By: Shannon Turlington Reviews

I have been a fan of Edward Gorey since I was a Gashlycrumb Tiny. Even if you don’t know Gorey’s work, you are probably familiar with his iconic pen-and-ink drawings from book covers and illustrations of children’s books. In Gorey’s own nonsense rhymes and stories, bizarre and dreadful things occur routinely. His verse subtly satirizes every sappy children’s poem or story you have ever read. His richly detailed, vaguely Victorian drawings depict a timeless world where bizarre things happen quite routinely. Despite their macabre subject matter -- or perhaps because of it -- we sense that Gorey was having fun writing and drawing these books, and we definitely have fun reading the full review
