In "Something at the window is scratching" erzählt Roman Dirge traurige Kurzgeschichten, über die man einfach herzhaft lachen kann.
Das Buch ist für ältere Kinder (so ab 8 Jahren meiner Meinung nach) geeignet, sofern diese bereits Englischkenntnisse haben, aber auch Erwachsene sollten einen Blick riskieren.
Ein einfach wundervolles Buch, das ich jedem nur wärmstens empfehlen kann.

VERY touched by this book 21. Juni 2000
Von AngelDust - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Well, it sounds really dumb, but I love this book more than anything else. There's one picture in the book that is just so adorable, and I loved the one story so much that I got it tattooed on me. Yes, you read that right. The little sandman's son is tattooed about 6 inches big on my back right shoulder blade. Now, if that isn't explaining how good something is, I don't know what could.

"This stuff just comes to you, huh?" - quoting Roman's Dad 4. Februar 2003
Von TorridlyBoredShopper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Roman Dirge's take on the childhood aspects are wonderful, especially when you filter into that account the entirety of his body of work. From Lenore, Monsters in My Tummy, and The Cat with a Really Big Head, and One Other Story that Isn't that Good, there is a scope that hits on what many of the imaginative creators in the past had sculpted while adding in his own thoughts and perspectives. Some range in the realms of the silly, some are smothered in darker aspects, and some are just plain twisted. In a sense that pleases this reader, it makes them all worthwhile reading.
Within Something at the Window is Scratching, forwarded by Jhonen Vasquez, we find twenty pieces of poetry forming "Children's tales fro disturbed children," as the front of the book calls them. Some are just that, too, dealing with everything from the silliest of notions in "Devil bunny" to more darkened aspects of demise in "the coo coo lady." While the continuity isn't always there and some of the pieces didn't interest me, the ones that did with their slightly disturbed Shel Silversteinesque rhyming methodology made me laugh and made the buy worthwhile. Also included in the book is a little game that Dirge wants you to play called find the piggies, where Dirge has drawn, you guessed it, little piggies into the backgrounds of some of his illustrations. Why would he do this? As he say, "I don't know." Still, it was fun for some reason that I cannot put my finger on.
If you've yet to check out Roman's work, perhaps you should start with Lenore and then work you way in. You can begin here if you wish because it is good stuff, but there are a few pieces that might make a lasting impression in one of Lenore's two Trade Paperbacks. Still, for even the casual fan of childhood madness, this is a nice piece to take home to your mother.

Just when you thought it was safe to read poems again! 5. August 1999
Von Josh Weibley (gallifreyandoctor@juno.com) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I love this book. It has the greatest art work, and the poems are the funniest yet. Very good for people who have a dark type of humor (and admit it, everyone does deep down.) 5 stars aren't enough to describe the zanny poems and illustrations. Also good, is his comic series 'Lenore', which I highly suggest for anyone who liked this book.

Timeless tales, silly portraits, all pretty tragic... 30. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Roman Dirge puts out a memorable collection of childish poems accompanied with good artwork. The language rings well with the pictures that are drawn in a very Dirge-distinct style, all on a grand spooky scale. What comes to mind is Shel Silverstein meets Edward Gorey meets the Simpsons meets Lane Smith. I recommend this little book for anyone, any age, with a bent for creepy-cute stuff.

Trying too hard to be funny 12. Mai 2004
Von xXxBATSxXx - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is my first experience with Roman Dirge, and it will probably be my last. I collect children's books, mainly off-beat ones, so this book caught my attention. But after reading through it, the only feeling I get from it is something similar to a stand-up comdedian trying his hardest to make people laugh. Do you know what I mean? For some people it just comes naturally to be funny or creepy, but Mr. Dirge is simply trying too hard. The illustrations are ok...just ok. But honestly, I wish I could trade this book in for something by Gris Grimly. The highlight of this book is searching for the hidden bunnies.
