The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish Hardcover – August 31, 2004
Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
It's a graphic short story more than a traditional picture book, by a famous fantasy and comics team. From the front end-flap to the final Fin (and not excepting the copyright page), this is a witty, funny collaboration. Neil Gaiman's grasp of kid-narrative logic and Dave McKean's whimsical layered art tell the story of a dad who "doesn't pay much attention to anything, when reading his newspaper" and the narrator's brilliant idea of swapping him for something more interesting--and of course, the convoluted consequences. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
“Delightful.” (Time Out New York Kids)
“A bittersweet, guffaw-out-loud story from the most distinctive partnership in picture books today.” (The Guardian (UK))
“McKean is in peak form here, with dark, spiky graphics that somehow manage to convey both sweetness and menace.” (Washington Post)
“Leave it to Neil Gaiman to write a zany tale that’s swimmingly good.” (The Washington Missourian)
“An energetic, eye-catching volume.” (Publishers Weekly)

Neil Gaiman always delivers and the art by Dave McKean is an amusing mixture, somewhat collage-like (sorry, I don't know much about art techniques, I just know when I really like art that also helps move the story along).
