Lethal Lullabies

Lethal Lullabies and Cautionary Tales is a collection of gothic poems with a decidedly grotesque twist. They follow the long established tradition of macabre cautionary tales for children by way of gothic Victoriana and the Brothers Grimm. On the way they pay tribute to the disturbing works of Hilaire Belloc, Edward Gorey, Mervyn Peake, the Addams Family, Roald Dahl, Poe, Snickett, Carrol and Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas. The illustrations do justice to the versified grande guignol of Jean Frecé’s haunting imagination.
