"Gaiman is at his best when the ordinary and the extraordinary bump up against each other in unexpected ways....Science fiction and fantasy fans will find much to delight them in this wealth of finely crafted stories." Children's Literature
"Although the stories are creepy, funny, and clever on the page, they are even better when read aloud." School Library Journal
In his first volume of short stories intended for younger readers, a national bestselling author presents 11 breathtaking tales — some never before collected — that can chill or amuse, but embrace the unexpected and illuminate the real and the fantastic. Illustrations.
