Description
As much for adult fans of Edward Gorey as it is for children 8 and up with a sense of ironic humor, this mock cautionary tale by Hilaire Belloc, originally penned in 1907, is set perfectly with Mini Grey's jaunty lift-the-flap illustrations. Signs posted on the covers and endpapers advise of the calamitous happenings about to unfold—"Warning: contains a dangerous beast and a miserable end"; "Not for those with a nervous disposition"; "We told you so"; et cetera—while a foldout map of the zoo (where the unfortunate events transpire) is peppered with even more cautions and prohibitions. Poor Jim is indeed eaten, until only his head remains, so don't pretend we didn't warn you.
