I don't know how well Roald Dahl's work is known over there, but he is very very dark. There's The Twits, a book about two utterly horrid people who pretty much do awful things until it kills them, the follow-up to Chocolate Factory that has giant blood-sucking space leeches (vermicious knids), his short story compendiums that include dark retellings of Aladdin and Mary Mary Quite Contrary, the story of a pickpocket - sorry, fingersmith - and Danny Champion of the World, which is basically about the son of a poacher. There's tons more, but yeah, he's dark.

Trick 'R Treat!

This was a great episode to carve pumpkins (and a lone spaghetti squash) by.
Thanks.

The best part about these carvings is the sheer number of kids who knew the reference despite not even having been born when Kiki's Delivery Service debuted. :mrgreen:
