A Book A Day In May - Picture Book Week

Since I missed yesterday, today will be a triple entry!
These are some of my favorite slightly darker picture books. Ones with just a hint of creepiness, that makes them all the more fun.
The Dangerous Alphabet, by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Gris Grimly
The Spider and the Fly, by Mary Howitt, illustrated by Tony DiTerlizzi
Creature Carnival, by Marilyn Singer, also illustrated by Gris Grimly.

The Dangerous Alphabet
Delightfully Deadly 

The Spider and the Fly (Illustrated by Tony DiTerlizzi)
Fancifully Frightful

Creature Carnival
Magnificently Monster-ous

Sadly, I can't seem to find out copy of Creature Carnival at the moment. Hopefully, if I just wait until dark, it will slither out from wherever it's been hiding.
