The Devil's Storybook by Natalie Babbitt
I read this book because I loved Natalie Babbit's Tuck Everlasting. This was nothing like that.
This selection felt very juvenile in its writing style. Many of the stories felt very similar to each other.
Each selection is meant to have the reader walk away with the sense of a moral. The end product just really didn't suit me though.
If you haven't read Tuck Everlasting, I highly recommend that. If you have, rest in that. The prose of Tuck Everlasting was pure joy.
