"What can I say? Neil Gaiman's juvenile fiction nearly outshines his adult ventures. I was introduced to this author through his short fiction, and have not been disappointed yet with any of his work."
Neil Gaiman; Dave McKean
Published by: HarperCollins
Edition: Paperback (ISBN #9780060530945)


"I downloaded the eBook from the library and was, again, amazed and pleased by Neil Gaiman's storytelling. Even better than this edition, is the audio book read by the author. A must have and a must gift."
Neil Gaiman; Brett Helquist

Edition: Hardcover (ISBN #9780061671739)

Cherie Priest

Edition: Paperback (ISBN #9780765318411)


"Not always an easy read. The writing is superb, but the subject matter will wrench your heart. But don't let that stop you. The 5-year old narrator will mend it for you. He did mine."
8) Room
Emma Donoghue
Published by: Back Bay Books
Edition: Paperback (ISBN #9780316098328)

Valerie Martin
Published by: Vintage
Edition: Paperback (ISBN #9780375725999)


"A perfect mystery book (projected series) for young readers. It will have you guessing until the end and rooting for its young heroes."
Eden Unger Bowditch
