Edward Gorey

Artist and author Edward Gorey (American, 1925–2000) is beloved for the boundless imagination and sharp humor exhibited in his more than 100 published works. Gorey was also a set and costume designer for innumerable theater productions, including a staging of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, for which he won a Tony. He had a profound affection for literature, film, ballet, and animals. Cats and other odd creatures appear in many of his crosshatched illustrations. His humorously unsettling drawings of vaguely Victorian innocents facing unfortunate ends became familiar to a wide audience after appearing in the opening credits of the PBS television series Mystery! Gorey’s Cape Cod home, a veritable cabinet of curiosities, is now a museum celebrating his life and work.

Putting together this puzzle is a perfect activity for teaching observation skills and attitudes to three to eight year olds. Observation is the earliest scientific process skill that can be taught, absolutely essential for raising an alert child. Dancing Cats teaches shape, color and pattern discrimination. Pomegranate should send flyers to every pre- and primary school in the U.S. and Canada, and to the National Science Teachers Association. (BTW: Seventeen Cats is a fun puzzle, but not nearly as good for the youngest childfren as is Dancing Cats, which is one of the best early learning devices I’ve seen recently.)

Great Fun

Gorey is sooo Gorey....and delightfully weird. We enjoyed this (big-g) puzzle a lot, and I ordered a second one for my sister.

Thanks a lot! We hope your sister enjoys it as much as you did. :)
