By this author I wanted to read “The Gashlycrumb Tinies” that I did not found in the library, so I chosed instead “The doubtful guest”.
In the book we have a poem made by verses in couple and a black and white image representing each scene.
The poem is a nonsense, as it is the guest, the output (poem + images) is funny also thanks to the contrast between the light and fun content of the rhyme and the dark, almost gothic, drawings.
