Description

Stories to delight, enchant, and surprise you.

Bestselling author and master storyteller Neil Gaiman here presents a breathtaking collection of tales that may chill or amuse readers—but always embrace the unexpected:
A teenage boy who has trouble talking to girls finds himself at a rather unusual party.A sinister jack-in-the-box haunts the lives of the children who owned it.A boy raised in a graveyard makes a discovery and confronts the much more troubling world of the living.A stray cat fights a nightly battle to protect his adopted family from a terrible evil.
These eleven stories illuminate the real and the fantastic, and will be welcomed with great joy by Neil Gaiman's many fans as well as by readers coming to his work for the first time.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 09, 2007 – Taking both inspiration and naming convention from Ray Bradbury s R Is for Rocket and S Is for Space, Gaiman s first YA anthology is a fine collection of previously published short stories. Although Gaiman s prose skill has improved markedly since the earliest stories included here, one constant is his stellar imagination, not to mention his knack for finding unexpected room for exploration in conventional story motifs. Jill Dumpty, sister of the late Humpty, hires a hard-boiled detective to look into her brother s tragic fall; the 12 months of the year sit around in a circle, telling each other stories about the things they ve seen; an elderly woman finds the Holy Grail in a flea market and takes it home because of how nice it will look on her mantelpiece. Collectors will be pleased to note the inclusion of several stories that were previously published in the now-hard-to-find collection Angels & Visitations. Also of note is fan favorite How to Talk to Girls at Parties, which has been nominated for a Hugo Award for 2007. Though Gaiman is still best known for his groundbreaking Sandman comic book epic, this volume is an excellent reminder of his considerable talent for short-form prose. Ages 10-up.
