'This book is quite extraordinary. Extraordinary and scary. But also madly inventive and madly funny. It illustrates two things that it is quite crucial to remember for this age group: you are never, ever too old for picture books and that even when you can read quite fluently - which many at the top end of this age range will be able to do - a story shared is a story that doubles in pleasure.' Guardian 'This spectacular book, with its stylish blend of photography, paint, collage and drawing does not look like most children's picture books. It bypasses the cosy, simplified cliches of child appeal, which makes it absolutely intriguing for youngsters. It is atmospheric, sinister, scary and funny This is a book for cool kids who will grow up to be fearless.' Sunday Times one of the most stylish picture books for 5+ a strange, cathartic, visually original book about a scary prediction that comes true, and is also classy and cool.' Sunday Times Books of the Year Gaiman's words and McKean's pictures are a match made in some dark damp inspirational place.
