Tales of a College Nothing

In his June 23 article in the Daily Californian (Berkeley), David Boyk writes an interesting review of John Bellairs’ books, mentioning The Curse of the Blue Figurine, among others.

The portion of text we found funny?
...they have pictures by Edward Gorey. Sadly, new editions have replaced his stylish, weird scratchings with the work of some schmuck who wouldn’t know a cross-hatch if it hit him in the Roman nose.
Our favorite?
The world’s simple, and the biggest problems mostly have to do with Johnny accidentally hurting Grampa’s feelings.
