Q. How different is this from H.P. Lovecraft's 1928 original story?
A. This is Lovecraft's original 1928 story rewritten in anapestic tetrameter and with entirely original art.
Q. Is this book suitable for 'beginning readers'?
A. This book could certainly be read to a 6 or 7 year old - they will enjoy the cadence. Capable 8 or 9 year olds should be able to read the story themselves. A great way to introduce your kids to the Mythos - or your nieces and nephews: be that beloved, exceedingly strange relative!
Q. What is anapestic tetrameter?
A: Anapestic tetrameter is a poetic rhythm often used in children's stories. Each line consists of four units of rhythm, known as 'feet'. Each foot has two unstressed syllables followed by a stressed syllable. A well-known example is the beginning line of Clement Clarke Moore's poem "Twas the Night Before Christmas" (aka "A Visit from St. Nicholas"): "Twas the night beforeChristmas, when all thro' the house / not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse."
