A gruesome re-imagining of the 12 Days of Christmas, John Updike's The Twelve Terrors of Christmas isn't anything special or amazing, but it was a fun little book to read. The accompanying Edward Gorey illustrations really make the book. It typical Gorey fashion, he takes everyday events and gives them that twist of the macabre to really make you think about what you're looking at.
