I remember the first time I ever read this story "The Monkey's Paw" by W.W Jacobs, it reeeealy spooked me being only 7 or 8 . Yes, instead of pretty princess bedtime stories at night we got haunted house and ghost stories, chiller and thriller novels read to me and my sister by my brothers from books they got at school book fairs . My dad would read us Tolkien every now and then because he wanted break the creepy trend, but orck fighting , dragon slaying and wars to save Middle Earth from an evil villian who wanted "world domination" and a ring... not much better. ( he-he)
Ahh ,childhood memories explains a lot though ;)
Well some may be familiar with the monky paw story but if you are not or have never read it you should I think you will enjoy the chill it gives you .
A classic tale of horror and a touch of mystic magic centered around a curious and grotesque dried up monkey paw that grantes three wishes. A story with the moral of be careful what you wish for ,one must not interfere with fate or what you ask for may come to you but at the price of death .
So with this I was inspired to make a new doll now listed on eBay ...do drop by and take a peek ..if you wish ;)
