Garden Gruesome is a delightful children’s book written and illustrated by Nelson R. Elliott. Gus, nicknamed “Gruesome Gus” is a young Goth inclined child who would rather stay inside the house and read scary books than go outside. When his mother insists that he go outside to help in the garden, he is reluctant. Gus soon finds many fascinatingly morbid reasons to love gardening as he becomes aware of death and decay present in nature.
