Neil Gaiman has proved himself a master story-tell for adults and children, his short stories - especially those written with children in mind - are my favorite of his work.
There's an indescribable magic in the way the stories in this collection are woven together. While I'd suggest savoring each story, a night at a time, you may find that you have to read them all in one sitting.
— From Amy's Picks
Master storyteller Neil Gaiman presents a breathtaking collection of tales for younger readers that may chill or amuse, but that always embrace the unexpected:
- Humpty Dumpty's sister hires a private detective to investigate her brother's death.
- A teenage boy who has trouble talking to girls finds himself at a rather unusual party.
- A boy raised in a graveyard makes a discovery, and confronts the much more troubling world of the living.
