Review by: A. Renee Hunt on Dec. 8, 2015 : (no rating)
I was given a gift today, a short story (this one) and a novel that I can't wait to touch. But first: A Sinister Grin.

This is an adorable, halloween themed story of a mean old man, a widow and her dog. It's written in a style similar to a Grimm Fairy Tale but very unique. I enjoyed the rhyme, the off-rhythm and of course, the actual story.

The old man is sour, yet excited to bring terror to unsuspecting children for Halloween. He doesn't care who he frightens or where he gathers his tools- enter the window across the way. The story is descriptive and easy to imagine, allowing readers, both young and old to glean. You hear from the old man, the old woman - who's another victim of the man's vile scheme - and even the dog!

Review by: S. J. Qualls on Oct. 31, 2014 :
I cannot say that I ever enjoyed poetry for Halloween more. This is something else. I could see the whole thing going on in my mind, no question - but I am not sure I was supposed to laugh. I did. I shall not forget A Sinister Grin, every time I think of it, I chuckle! Thank you!
