The Dwindling Party is a pop-up book about the MacFizzet’s family visit to Hickyacket Hall.  They fall victim, 0ne-by-one, to the assorted dangers lurking on the property until only young Neville is left.  Long out of print, this book is a favorite with Gorey fans who admire its nod to various mystery elements and its clever verse.
