Great CD of children's stories read by the author - and interviewed by his daughter at the end.

I really enjoyed this collection. The stories are fantastical, absurdly funny. Gaimans narration rocks. If someone had read to me as a child the way Gaiman reads, I would have likely developed a love for fantasy and fairy tales. Not all is lost though. I might be a grown woman, but there is a part of us that enjoys revisiting our childhood. Gaimans work is a gateway to celebrating being young and being open to the outrageous.

This collection contains four stories: one is a poem about hair where animals and dancers and a host of fanciful characters play. Another is the story about a boy who swaps his dad for goldfish, another about wolves in the walls, and the last is about an exotic princess who refuses to talk. Sometimes collections can be uneven; some stories are better than others. With this collection, Id have a hard time picking a favorite.

So youve got great stories, a great storyteller but there is more. Gaimans young daughter, Maddy interviews him about his work and desire to write. Fun, fun, fun. I keep saying Im not into fantasy, but I think Gaiman is quickly making me a convert.
