The Adventures of the Princess and Mr. Whiffle
is a dark twist on the classic children's picture-book. I think of it as "Calvin and Hobbes
" with some Edward Gorey mixed in. Simply said: This is not a book for children. It looks like a children's book. It has pictures. But all of that is just protective coloration. The truth is, this is a book for adults with a dark sense of humor and an appreciation of old-school faerie tales. There are three separate endings to the book - one ending is sweet, another horrible, and the last with teeth.
