Grade 10 Up–Delirium, the youngest of the Endless family, and her brothers and sisters are encountered as adults in Neil Gaiman's graphic novel series The Sandman (DC Comics). Thompson, Gaiman's collaborator, has created a world of the Endless as children. In this story, Delirium's small dog is in charge of keeping her safe, because she is easily distracted. When he goes off into the woods to see a man about a tree, she goes off in search of him. When he returns he cannot find her so he visits each of her siblings, including Destiny and Death (two major characters in Sandman), to try to find her. Each one gives him a charm (a symbol of their adult character), but it is not clear how they will help him. It is difficult to determine the intended audience, although the book itself indicates it is meant for mature audiences. The writing is uneven, and the humor is very adult, but the plot is simple and too predictable for older readers. Not a true graphic novel, but an illustrated story, the full-page manga-style art seems aimed at younger children. Sandman fans are the most likely audience, and they are sure to find these illustrations disappointing and substandard.–Ronnie Gordon, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

Incredibly enedearing art makes this picture book a page-turner. Barnabas the Dog accidentally loses track of little Delirium when he excuses himself to take care of some puppy business. His search for her leads him to the realms of her siblings, who award him with vague advice and a charm from each of them. Thompson's Little Endless conception made just one appearance in Neil Gaiman's original run of Sandman but was, nevertheless, a fan favorite. If this story is short and faithful to children's-book conventions (e.g., art and text appear on facing pages), the art is fabulous--cute but not without the edge that one expects from the Sandman line. The story is funny and appealing in itself, yet it incorporates enough insider jokes to gratify Sandman fans. A few pages at the end of the book are dedicated to explaining how the stories came about and relaying a few tidbits about the Little Endless dolls and figures. Tina Coleman

Note: I did get the second opinion of my wife after I read other reviewers and she couldn't figure out why our daughter should not be exposed to the Endless.
They already have all the characteristics that made us love them...but in this book you can also find them cute as our own little kids.
I love the way Gaiman writes, love all his books and this adds another way to introduce and connect the Sandman family to the kids at early age.
