Product description

Weird, wicked, spooky and delicious, Pretty Monsters is a book of tall tales to keep you up all night. Kelly Link creates a world like no other, where ghosts of girlfriends past rub up against Scrabble-loving grandmothers with terrifying magic handbags, wizards sit alongside morbid babsitters, and we encounter a people-eating monster with a sick sense of humour. This edition also features a Brand New story, 'The Cinderella Game'.

Review quote

'Funny, moving, tender, brave and dangerous. She is unique, and should be declared a national treasure, and possibly surrounded at all times by a cordon of armed marines.' Neil Gaiman
