Edward Gorey’s mordant masterpiece The Wuggly Ump charts the fate of three wholesome children whose happy days weaving chains of flowers are cut short when the mysterious Wuggly Ump hurtles from its den in search of tasty tots. Set to deceptively pleasant rhymes and illustrated in Gorey’s inimitable style, this lighthearted and mildly unsettling cautionary tale has delighted legions of Gorey fans since its first publication in 1963.
