Landis Blair interweaves absurdist horror and humor into brief, rhyming vignettes at once transgressive and hilarious. Inspired by the dark imagination of Edward Gorey, Envious Siblings: And Other Morbid Nursery Rhymes is a twisted and hauntingly funny debut. These charmingly perverse creations take ordinary settings—a living room, a subway car, a playground—and spin them in a nightmarish direction.

Envious Siblings heralds a brilliant new cartooning talent, and will captivate readers who have thrilled to the lurid fantasies of Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake, Charles Addams, Shel Silverstein, and Tim Burton.
