This is a very fun and wonderful read. The writing in tandem with the incredible illustration (done by Dave McKean) offer a whimsical atmosphere. I think readers of all ages will enjoy this. :D

Haven't read this yet but on the basis of everything else of niel gaiman's that i've read it's only a matter of time. I recently read his novel, neverwhere, and good omens which he did with Terry Pratchett.
Plus Mirror Mask will be out this year! Woooo! hehe,
Oh yeah and read his short stories "Smoke and mirrors", excellent book.
hehe :D

That book is great, but then I like pretty much anything he turns out. Check out The Wolves in the Walls if you haven't already - more McKean + Gaiman picture book goodness.

Yeah, Wolves in the Walls was actually the first 'story' book i bought of the Gaimen and McKean team.

I have a few more suggestions, but i'll post them later, i'm too tired. :D

I love this book. I've read it to groups of kids though, and I got mixed reviews. One group didn't like it, the other very much did. I think the difference was in how I introduced it to them- it is a very unconventional style of storytelling.
