Twenty-six curious creatures—from the fastidious Ampoo to the world's one and only Zote—fill the pages of this untamed alphabet in verse from 1967, each given a distinct personality in Edward Gorey's vaguely woeful drawings. "The Gawdge is understood to save / All sorts of objects in its cave," while "The Humglum crawls along the ground, / And never makes the slightest sound," and "The Scrug's extremely nasty-looking, / And is unusable for cooking." Here too you will meet the Boggerslosh and the Crunk, the Ippagoggy and the Jelbislup, the Twibbit and the Ulp, and don't be too surprised if some of them seem oddly familiar.
