Aidan, Dani and I took a trip to the local library yesterday and I happened upon this little gem of a book.
Neil Gaiman has always been a bit of hit and miss for me. I like some of his work and dislike some of it.
This one I really, really, enjoyed.
Instructions is a quick reading children's book about a fox that wanders down a path into a fantasy world, at once easily recognizable but also unique in it's own magical way.
The words on the page mesh magnificently with Charles Vess' extraordinary, fantastical, illustrations.
If you have a little fantasy lover in your home, or simply a fan of either of these two magicians, Instructions is the perfect bedtime magic carpet ride.
