From the Publisher. The Misadventures of Dreary and Naughty introduces two new icons to the world of children’s and teen literature. In a world where everyday is Halloween, this is a cautionary tale about the son of the Grim Reaper (Dreary) and the daughter of the Devil (Naughty), who are sent by their parents to attend high school with mortal children to learn about humanity-and how “inhuman” high school years can be. Set in verse by John LaFleur and illustrated in black and white watercolor by Shawn Dubin, it is a story that reminds both young and old how it feels to be ostracized during our sometimes-challenging school years. Embedded in the story is a gentle reminder of the importance of tolerance and true friendship, and how both can make school days go a little easier. This brand new edition marks the 10-year anniversary of the title’s initial release in 2003 and features some revised text from the original.
