Product Description:

Master storyteller Neil Gaiman presents a breathtaking collection of tales for younger readers that may chill or amuse, but that always embrace the unexpected:

  • Humpty Dumpty's sister hires a private detective to investigate her brother's death.
  • A teenage boy who has trouble talking to girls finds himself at a rather unusual party.
  • A boy raised in a graveyard makes a discovery, and confronts the much more troubling world of the living.

Product Description:

In this collection of wonderful stories, which range between fantasy, humour, science fiction and a sprinkling of horror, the reader will relish the range and skill of Neil Gaiman's writing. Be prepared to laugh at the detective story about Humpty Dumpty's demise, spooked by the sinister jack-in -the-box who haunts the lives of the children who own it, and intrigued by the boy who is raised by ghosts in a graveyard in this collection of bite-sized narrative pleasures.
