Reviews for The Gashlycrumb Tinies Revealed
Lisanka chapter 22 . 1/2/2016
I love this! It's black humor is as perfect as the book's, with gems such as "wheeled into surgery to remove a Polo mint from her left nostril" and Clara's parents preserving her brain. I also love how the children range from annoying to perfectly innocent. I'd love to see this finished, if you could. Overall, bravo!

*snerk* Short and sweet, and very good. Keep 'em coming. ;)
Thalaba chapter 20 . 6/24/2008
LOL I liked this one a lot. Great interpretation!
dansemacabre chapter 19 . 5/14/2008
Ha, good one. It must be something of a challenge, thinking up so many ways for small children to perish, but you're doing a great job. ;)
dansemacabre chapter 17 . 2/29/2008
"When there was no more Quentin to light upon, the moth flew away."

LOL! Classic ending. Loved it. ;)

I think I'm a bit behind in reading/reviewing, but was glad to see you'd updated!

Ha, you captured Neville well. Dying of ennui always seemed like a rather snotty thing to do for a kid. ;) I especially liked mention of the estate in Dover, his library, the coloring books, and of course, his grim end.
Severe Cabbage chapter 14 . 12/4/2007
You have really mastered the art of adding a single sentence that really...well, I don't know how to describe it. A perfect finishing touch, I suppose. For instance: "He rang his little bicycle bell on the way down." That is an excellent, excellent sentence.

As I may have mentioned one or three times, I love all of these little stories. All hail to thee.
Thessaly chapter 14 . 12/4/2007
You know, I'd always imagined Neville as wasting away inside a building - I think it's the picture - but this is funny as well.

I love the paragraph about the White Cliffs and the jaded tone of the whole thing. It's a great capture.

Oh, fabulous. This is me, by the way. I'm just too lazy to log in. It's been a miserable week, but this just make things a little bit better.

"...wheeled into surgery to have a Polo mint removed from her left nostril."

*snerk* Good one. And bonus points for having parents who plan a subtle homicide.

You are really quite amazing at characterizing all the kids in here. Especially considering that Gorey only spared one line for each of them! I am greatly looking forward to reading even more of these, so keep up the fab work.

PS: I think the unfortunate Ida's story is my favorite by far... the line "The silk flowers were appallingly damp" is quite possibly a stroke of genius.

Sonnets about dead kids are just the way to start one's day. ;)
Thalaba chapter 12 . 11/19/2007
L is for Leo...

This one was very funny and as a poem quite good. Great job :)
