Reviews

"Like Dillweed, Heide and Ellis have worked a little black magic. Together, they've conjured up a delightful tale of revenge. And empowerment. As wickedly fun as Gorey, Dahl, or Belloc"--Lane Smith "The story is unnerving, the characters are unpleasant, and the artwork is unsettling. I am going to read this book again and again."--Lemony Snicket

"Well-deserved woe unto adults who do Dillweed wrong!...His parents are off voyaging, and he's poetically jealous: 'Dillweed liked to go places. He liked to have adventures. He liked to have a good time. His parents went places. His parents had adventures. His parents had a good time. The parents. Not Dillweed'...Good, macabre fun."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Carson Ellis, with her signature palate and line character, has created an utterly charming set of illustrations for this remarkable book."--The Huffington Post "Young lovers of Gaiman and Gorey will relish the gruesome fun of this parental cautionary tale."--The Bulletin
