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'.
