This outstanding collection includes four of Gaiman’s wonderfully offbeat and engaging children’s tales, which showcase his talents as a storyteller for the whole family. From The Wolves in the Walls (playfully scary) to Cinnamon (a touching story in which a little princess is taught to speak by an enormous tiger) to the outlandish The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish and the delightfully rhyming Crazy Hair, this collection demonstrates a range of creative energy that will appeal to a wide audience. Gaiman is also a terrific performer who captivates listeners with his pleasant British voice, which is persuasively easy on the ear. The collection includes a charming interview by Gaiman’s young daughter in which we learn why his first children’s book lives in a box in his attic, why he loves to hear authors read their own work, and what it’s like to write for both children and adults.
