Publisher Comments:

Ray Bradbury's classic short story The Homecoming has been a literary Halloween treat since its publication in Mademoiselle in 1946. The tale of an ordinary boy in an enormous family of ghouls attending a special reunion on All Hallow's Eve, it is at once haunting, humorous, and heartfelt. Enhanced by the illustrations of and designed by world-renowned multimedia artist David McKean, this unique collector's edition will thrill readers of all ages.

Synopsis:

Illustrated classics for adults! Here, Collins Design's WISP series pairs two legendary creators–writer Ray Bradbury and artist Dave McKean–to create an irresistible package perfect for Halloween and all year 'round.

The WISP series (Wonderfully Illustrated Short Pieces) represents an ingenious marriage of two creative forces: the artistry of today's foremost illustrators and the literary legacy of beloved authors of popular short works for adults. The resulting offspring of this union are captivating, full–color illustrated editions of timeless classics that readers will want to savor and collect.

For the first time ever, the series makes selected popular short works previously offered only in collections available in a unique, stand–alone format. Also for the first time, WISPs harness the talents of top illustrators for the benefit and delight of a new, older audience.

This WISP presents Ray Bradbury's The Homecoming, a little boy's tale of his family reunion of vampires. This story was initially published in 1946 and later refashioned into further stories. Bringing this story to life are the wondrous illustrations of Dave McKean, whose delightful artwork perfectly matches the tale.

These one–of–a–kind, attractively priced and invitingly formatted illustrated editions will make a great impulse buy and appeal to a broad audience.

This is a beautifully illustrated edition of the Ray Bradbury short story "The Homecoming," which was first published in Mademoiselle in 1946, and later became part of the novel From the Dust Returned. The story concerns Timothy, the only mortal human in a family of ghouls and vampires, and his longing to truly belong. Dave McKean's illustrations complement the story perfectly, and all in all it's a wonderful little book.
