Have You Any Fear? Summary
A seasonal anthology exploring the sinister nature of classic children’s nursery rhymes.Webtoon
Have You Any Fear? isn’t one of my favorites, mostly because I’m not too familiar with some of the nursery rhymes.
I mean, I know the famous ones like “Ring Around the Rosie’s”, but that’s about it.
I feel like if you actually knew the rhymes from childhood, your interpretation of these may have been more “aha” oriented. For me I was struggling to wrap my head around what I had read.
There’s definitely some free interpretation regarding these nursery rhymes and I like that. It’s interesting to see what an artist can do with a pre-existing story or song.
Most of these stories aren’t super straightforward and requires some thinking. One thing is for certain, though. They’re not suitable for young children. Unless you want to scar them for life.
Final thoughts: The stories are versatile and interesting, so you may as well give them a look. They’re all free to read on webtoons.
