Let me start off by saying I LOVE Neil Gaiman and his stories. They are always so dark and creepy and this is no exception. I don't want to talk too much about it without giving it away (and I am getting kinda sleepy, hence, why I don't want to keep writing for much longer... XP), but I just love how the illustrations were so dark and grotesque looking; it matched the story perfectly. Gaiman was able to make you feel kinda squeamish with just a few pages to this short children's book.
If you love Gaiman, then I am sure you will love this book. It's dark, creepy, and moves at a very fast pace which will make you crave more of his works.
