.This month the Graphic Novel Book Club will read and discuss Through the Woods by Emily Carroll. In this debut collection, Carroll crafts five unsettling tales inspired by common folkloric themes -- from wolves in the woods to peculiar visitors to dark possessions. She posits that "the worst kind of monster was the burrowing kind. The sort that crawled into you and made a home there," and that's exactly what Carroll accomplishes, burrowing inside the reader's mind and twisting what should be safe into something startlingly strange. Swirling, chaotic, hand-lettered, and ink-smudged illustrations bring each grisly story to life.
