Summary / Annotation
Creepy and Cool submitted by wellscai on June 15, 2018, 3:33pm I enjoyed the Merry Spinster! I've been missing The Toast's "Children's Stories Made Horrific" and this satisfies that craving exactly.
So amazing!! submitted by -alex- on June 20, 2018, 12:05pm These are the kind of fairytales that Morticia Addams would read to her kids. They're dark, creepy, subversive, but also deeply funny, culturally aware, and culturally righteous. Check it out!!
