"The artist Edward Gorey (American, 1925-2000) created a diverse menagerie ranging from Menacing Monsters to Sleepy Cats. One of his creepiest Creatures was an Ump renowned for its Wuggliness. Mr. Gorey drew the Ump, from its 'little wilful eyes' to the tip of its snakey tail, & he wrote down its scary story. The whole thing is here for you to color, along with some other pictures of Cats, a Lion, several Little Girls, & two Ladies in Very Big Hats.
"You will find 22 of Gorey's pictures in this coloring book. They are shown as small pictures on the inside front & back covers. Sometimes Gorey used color, but quite often he simply drew with black ink. Still, he'd have been curious to see what colors you might add to his drawings."
