… The Inexplicably Enduring Appeal of Hilaire Belloc’s “Cautionary Tales” | The New Yorker. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)
The article seems to run counter to the headline. It very quickly makes plain their appeal, which has much in common with Edward Gorey's The Gashlycrumb Tinies. Also, Amazon certainly has enough titles of Belloc's books. I remember reading his religious poems in my Catholic grade school, and even remember seeing his obituary in the paper.
