It's difficult to say what The Iron Tonic is about, although it is 'known the skating pond conceals a family of enormous eels', and that 'the light is fading from the day. The rest is darkness and dismay'. Whatever it is about, though, The Iron Tonic could be seen as Edward Gorey's version of a winter afternoon in one of the great Russian novels of the nineteenth century.
