Here, the harrowing escapades of Big Sis and Lil Sis are told by Michelle Wilson, writer and photographer of this beautiful hardcover for kids . . . or adults. The two characters fight, as is only natural for sisters so different from each other (although both are equally dorky-looking). On the other hand, the two monsters who worm their way into the girls’ lives do co-operate, albeit as master and slave. No one guesses how Wretch and Putress have come into being . . . except Big Sis, who trembles in full knowledge. And to think it all started by organizing a birthday, ever-so-innocuously, for her little baby sister! Yes, the tale’s horrifying, but darkly funny too. The photographs, of models made and shot by Wilson, are macabre—with a Victorian edginess taken to the extreme. The glorious bonfire in a cave, for instance, unexpectedly chills you.
