BK-'The Sopping Thursday' by Edward GoreyBK - The Sopping Thursday by Edward Gorey.
An umbrella is missing. A man is distressed. A thief scampers over rooftops. A child is in danger. A harangued sales clerk weeps. A dog saves the day.
The Sopping Thursday is unlike any other Edward Gorey book, both because of its unique gray-and-black illustrations and because of what looks very much like a happy ending. (Still, some will fret a bit about the child featured in the final picture.) In just thirty images and thirty short lines of text, Gorey manages to create a complex tableau of characters and a plot worthy of film noir.
