Peter Neumeyer & Edward Gorey: The Donald Boxed Set
Meet Donald, a little boy who has little adventures that to him are very big indeed. In Donald and the . . ., Donald finds a crawly creature. His mother lets him keep it in a jar, but soon it disappears. Donald takes to bed with painful ribs. But when he’s all better, he looks in the jar and discovers a fine surprise. In Donald Has a Difficulty, when Donald hurts his leg, his mother (as wise as she is kind) knows just what to do. And Donald learns what hurts and what doesn’t—and that surprises him, too.

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.
I really enjoyed the brevity of words. Very Edward Goreyesque. Illustrations and words are perfectly matched.
Love Ed Gorey.
