The Gremlins by Roald Dahl

Roald Dahl’s very first book for children, The Gremlins, was originally intended for production as an animated film by Walt Disney, but the film was dropped before it was completed. Disney did, however, still publish the book (fewer than 5,000 copies) that had been created as a tie-in with the movie’s release. Last September, Dark Horse published a reprint of the story with a forward by Leonard Maltin.

In the meantime, the original text and illustrations can be found online.

  2. Ray Stantz: “Symmetrical smiley stacking. Just like the Philadelphia mass turbulence of 1947.”

    Peter Venkman: “You’re right, no human being would stack smileys like this.”
