You know all of Zebra's book are fine, Will :-)
Just when I thought I'd seen every possible permutation of the innocent and the macabre (creepy kid, clown, stroller, teddy bear, etc), along comes this. NOW I've seen it all.
Wow, I kind've like it and will probably give it a try. And then, like with many of the old Zebra books I have bought these last few months I will probaby set it down afterward and be like 'what was I thinking?'
There comes a point when you gotta ask: "What were they thinking?!"
Holy shit! I've never even seen that one before! That one may just top "skeleton with a banjo"! I hate to admit it though, but I'd probably buy the damn thing just for the cover, so maybe they had something there...
I just read this one last year, and I thought it was...kinda cute/sweet (especially when compared to the cover). There was a nicely realized relationship between the little girl magician and her grandfather and his magician circle. The cover is unforgivable. The book--not bad.
I *have* heard that Gresham's books didn't deserve their covers...
That cover is magically delicious.
