Publisher Description

A small book filled with "Tim Burton meets Dr Seuss" style kids rhyming stories, with illustrations!


The title story was inspired by author Neil Gaiman when being interviewed by Stephen Colbert on the Colbert Report. He said “children’s fiction always has a little bit of darkness in it”, and I wrote down “A Little Bit of Darkness” as soon as I heard him say the words. It’s true, and children aren’t any where near as scared as the grown ups think they will be.



The story titles should give you some idea of the kinds of rhyming silliness that is included in the book:



- A Little Bit of Darkness

- Death of the Ringmaster

- Nursery Rhyme Gone Bad

- Dead Head

- Dead Fred

- The Procrastinator

- Electric Man

- Rhyming Pain



As a devotee of all things delightfully dark, I couldn't possibly help but be captivated by Steve Sagovac's, 'A Little Bit of Darkness'. His illustrated collection of Burtonesque rhymes is downright festering with macabre charm.
