Creatures Peculiar and Crooks

Regular price $10.00

The second book of poems and drawings by Athens local Bain Mattox is a pocketful of slightly creepy, sad, hairy, scaly, growly, or maybe just unnerving tales -- the very kind of thing that kids of all ages like to read just before shutting out the lights! 

Creatures peculiar and crooks
Haunting the pages of books
Are born from the night
A lit match, candlelight
Create shadows from the gobbledygook
....
I trap them inside storybooks
And don them with less threatening looks
And I'll make them behave
And I'll keep you unscathed
From these Creatures Peculiar and Crooks
