The Tiny Twisted Tales are a collection of short stories and poems from the rather strange mind of Calvin Innes.
Each Tiny Twisted Tale is about another weird, scary, wonderfully gruesome character, from people who eat bugs, to tiny toga-wearing goblins. Each book is packed with dozens of Calvin’s quirky illustrations.
Stuart The Bug Eating Man is about a man with an unusual taste for all things creepy and crawly. He likes nothing better than munching on a centipede sandwich or guzzling down a tall frosty glass of liquidized slug. Unfortunately his family don’t share his taste in snacks.
Stuart would eat bugs,with his fork and with his knife.
Much to the disgust of Harriet, his wife.
He’d munch them, and crunch them,legs and all.
While they’d wriggle and squirmand scurry and crawl.
A must read for children of all ages who love disgusting, scary, silly and wonderfully macabre books.
