The Insect God by Edward Gorey.


Title: The Insect God.
Author: Edward Gorey.
Genre: Fiction, poetry.
Country: U.S.
Language: English.
Publication Date: 1963.
Summary: Poor little Millicent is happily minding her own business and nibbling some grass in the park (as you do). As darkness creeps in a stranger pulls up and offers Millicent a cinnamon ball. As her greedy little fingers move to fish one out she is snatched and taken away to a strange land where she is stripped naked, bundled into a pod and offered as a sacrifice to the Insect God.

My rating: 8/10
