A Gift for My Daughter,
This review is from: Blueberry Girl (Hardcover)
I am reluctant to give this book up.
It's Neil Gaiman, and that means words: good words. It's Charles Vess, and that means art: beautiful art.
It's also for girls and women and probably other feminine creatures, and I don't qualify for any of those titles.
However, my daughter... now, for my daughter, this is the perfect gift. Its inspiration and encouragement will be there for her, give her something to look through and keep in mind when I'm not right there to say all the sorts of inspirational and encouraging things a father can say to his daughter. Maybe, when she reads it, she will smile and think kindly of all the times I've said something similar, and maybe, just maybe, she won't roll her eyes like she would when I say those things...
She's nearly a teenager now, and the only problem I really see with this book is that it wasn't around a decade or so ago so I could read it to her over and over through the years...

This is not really a children's book. Don't waste your money if your kids are younger than 10.
