Pretty Monsters

The companion volume to the surreal collection The Wrong Grave, with decorations by Shaun Tan.

Weird, wicked, spooky and delightful, Pretty Monsters is a book of tall tales to keep you up all night. Blending fairytale, fantasy, horror, myth and mischief in a delicious cocktail, Kelly Link creates a world like no other, where bloodsucking ghosts are not greedy and where a boy is kidnapped by his father to wait for the aliens to return and we encounter a people-eating monster who claims to have a sense of humour.

Combining the imaginative brilliance of Jorge Luis Borges with the madcap escapades of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and more than a pinch of macabre humour, this is writing to come back from the dead for.
