The Twelve Terrors Of Christmas Book
Updike's sardonic observations and fretful musings on the Christmas season and all its trappings- What is this guy Santa Claus really up to?
Just what is his arrangement to those elves? Will the Christmas tree topple under the weight of its baubles, will the tiny reindeer hooves ruin the roof? - are perfectly complemented by the haunted-looking shoppers and partygoers in Gorey's humorously unsettling illustrations.
