“ Gore's haunting black-and-white drawings both dramatize key events and reveal something of the characters' psyches. His visual artistry coupled with the luxurious design of this hand-sized volume makes this a tale to return to time after time.”

                                 (Starred review)

“  … a deliciously spooky story combining elements of Frankenstein, the Sorcerer's Apprentice, and Faust. ...These soft-edged drawings, full of light and shadow are extremely well crafted and satisfyingly strange. Read this one aloud and discuss it afterward.”
