I heard about this book for some time, and I can say, I was very curious and wanted to read it. And lo and behold! my library had it!
The book was absolutely stunning, the illustrations are dark, haunting but also very beautiful. Though they tend to give you goosebumps when we get to the big monster.
The story itself was beautiful. It was a story about loss, about truth and about saying what is on your mind. Also deals with children and sick parents.
And really, while most of the book just spooked me out (the stories told by the monster add to that), the ending was just beautiful, and sad. I cried a few tears.
I would really recommend this book to all. Read it!
