Brilliantly witty spooky tales

These stories are similar to the brothers Grimm in the sense they are wonderfully dark. Many times there are brutal and gory parts but mostly it is fine. It is also very eitty and funny which is a distraction from the hardship the characters face.

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
