Recommended. By Lori Mortensen. Art by Chloe Bristol. A beautifully illustrated and lyrical picture-book biography (for all ages) of eccentric and beloved writer and artist Edward Gorey.

Details

A beautifully illustrated and lyrical picture-book biography (for all ages) of eccentric and beloved writer and artist Edward Gorey. One of literature’s most creepily creative authors and illustrators, the inspiration behind a generation of creators, from Lemony Snicket to Tim Burton. He went on to publish well over one hundred of his own books, stories that mingled sweetness and innocence, danger and darkness, all mixed with his own brand of silliness. Illustrated with Gorey-like humor and inspiration by Chloe Bristol.

Known for, among other things, wearing a large fur coat wherever he went, Gorey was respected for both his brilliance and his eccentricity. As a child, he taught himself to read and skipped several grades before landing at Harvard (after a brief stint in the army)! Then he built a name for himself as a popular book illustrator.

Full color. Author's Note provides a two-page biography to extend the book's offerings.
