The premise was so simple, yet so unlike anything else I've read for children. Neil Gaiman has the uncanny gift of being able to delve into the brains of any age group and write for them. In this case, it was the brain of a child, who was sick of seeing his dad just sitting around reading the newspaper. A child who was jealous of his friend's goldfish and wanted them so badly, he was willing to trade for them. In steps the useless, newspaper-reading, dad. The friend asks for the dad, the boy agrees. So the dad goes, and the kid gets his goldfish.
What he isn't aware of is that his dad was being traded around the entire neighborhood because he was so boring. So his friend traded his dad in the next door kid's guitar, and so on and so forth.
When the mom finds out what's happened, she gets mad and asks him to get his dad back. So begins the boy's journey to get everyone's things back to their original owner, in order to get his dad back.
So much fun!
