The Gashlycrumb Tinies: or, After the Outing is an abecedarian book written by Edward Gorey that was first published in Gorey tells the tale of 26 children each representing a letter of the alphabet and their untimely deaths in rhyming dactylic couplets, accompanied by the author's distinctive black and white illustrations.

It is one of Edward Gorey's best-known books, and is the most notorious amongst his roughly half-dozen mock alphabets. The morbid humor of the book comes in part from the mundane ways in which children die, such as falling down the stairs or choking on a peach.

Far from illustrating the dramatic and fantastical childhood nightmares, these scenarios instead poke fun at the banal paranoias that come as a part of parenting.

I feel so bad saying how much I enjoyed this one It's Edward Gorey, people! One of the artists that defined the Gothic illustrating style as we know it today. Influenced with Victorian and Edwardian elements, this alphabet book is everything an alphabet book shouldn't be But I loved it.

And I am a teacher. And what does this say for me? Also, I am horrible This is an abecederian book written in 26 couplets. One was thrown out of a sleigh, another was smothered under a rug and a third one died of ennui. I know this would be a book that will be difficult to stomach for some readers but if we try and ignore the macabre of the situations, then the entertaining factor is right there.

Plus, it's Edward Gorey. One cannot write a review on any of his works. He is meant to be experienced, his artistic style, his particular way of writing, his uniqueness Trust me, you won't be disappointed View all 22 comments.

I loved this little book. I love Edward Gorey. This is a book of ABCs and each letter is how a child died. I know this is macabre and quirky. I think being the end of my trimester and drained of sleep, I simply was dying laughing at each page of this book. I don't know why. It was the release that I needed apparently.

The art is classic Gorey and only he would be quirky enough to use ennui. This is amazing stuff and I think this stuff is rather brilliant. And, it is a good stress reliever, appar I loved this little book. And, it is a good stress reliever, apparently. This is not for everyone, but if you like quirky and different, I think you will enjoy this master's work. This is probably my favorite of Edward's so far! View all 18 comments.

After the Outing Wew, weird, dark, absurd In short, A-Z alphabet but a morbid one. Children who tragically parted with life A is for Amy who fell down the stairs B is for Basil assaulted by bears And so on until Z.

Absurd, the weirdest collection Second Gorey for me, what an artist Anyone have a recommendation for my next Edward Gorey? View all 5 comments. Shelves: poetry-is-band-aid , children , horror , for-my-children , away-laughing-on-a-fast-camel , graphic-novels. Every time I read a disturbing book, I'm gripped by the thought of wanting to make my future children read it don't know what that says about me.

I mean, this book is perfect- a perfect cocktail of morbidity, poetry, beautiful art and the funnies. This is a book about 26 children or as Gorey calls them, tinies each for a different alphabet who meet a Gorey heh end. It's beautiful! And it's a book with a lesson- we all are mortals, we're all bound to die sometime.

Bah, fairy tales with high Every time I read a disturbing book, I'm gripped by the thought of wanting to make my future children read it don't know what that says about me. Bah, fairy tales with high unrealistic quotients.

Give me some disturbing children's book any day. View 2 comments. May 08, Nandakishore Varma rated it it was amazing. I have a love-hate relationship towards creepy children's books. During my childhood, they used to scare the hell out of me - in those days the enlightened souls who wrote children's books were of the opinion that scaring the living daylights out of a kid was the best way to ensure that he grew up to be an upright human being. But I went back, again and again. They must have inculcated the enduring love of horror that I have today.

This is an alphabet book - or A B C book as we Indians call it - I have a love-hate relationship towards creepy children's books. This is an alphabet book - or A B C book as we Indians call it - which attempts to teach each letter of the alphabet with an example. But instead of the "A for Apple, B for Ball" we have kids who met their end in various unusual and gruesome ways.

And the accompanying pictures are creepy and funny at the same time. I mean, how many kids "die of ennui"? View all 12 comments.
