text that I wrote to already-existing images by Isabelle Vandenabeele.
It's her variation of the classical tale about Bluebeard, more suited
for grown-ups maybe, or for kids that like to shiver: one day Louise
realises that her life has become boring. She used to be a horror-loving
girl, who dared anything and who adored bad boys, like Rotten Boy.
Louise wants to do something exciting and goes to Shiver Forest. When
she is attacked by a wolf, Rotten Boy rescues her. He takes her to his
castle and then leaves her alone. He forbids her to open some of the
doors, but of course a horror girl never obeys. This way, Louise
discovers that Rotten Boy collects women heads. She can leave the castle
just in time and sets a trap for Rotten Boy.
