About this title


In Story for Sara: What Happened to a Little Girl, French writer Alphonse Allais (1854-1905) created a tiny universe inhabited by a polite and courteous little girl who curtsies even to little birds. In the world we know, her subsequent, selfish descent into deceit might have taught her an important lesson. But in this delightfully twisted tale--Gorey translated it into English and brought it to life with his distinctive drawings--the consequences of her actions illustrate the concept of instant karma. This calendar reproduces Allais's story in its entirety, enhanced by fifteen of Gorey's atmospheric interpretations.

Size: 7 x 7 in.; opens to 7 x 14 in.
