By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 20, 2015
Format: Paperback
Illustrations can make or break a book's experience -- good ones will enhance the book's atmosphere, and bad ones will wreck your ability to envision what the author describes.

Fortunately, Neil Gaiman has connected with some great illustrators over the years. And one of the illustrators who best works with Gaiman is Chris Riddell, who has illustrated the three books in this collection: the whimsical "Fortunately the Milk," eerie children's horror story "Coraline," and the elegant, gothic "The Graveyard Book" (which won the Newbury Award). All three books are enchanting on their own, and Riddell's illustrations perfectly fit Gaiman's eerie, eccentric writing style.

"Fortunately the Milk" skews the youngest of the three stories (despite some jokes clearly intended for the grown-ups), and is possibly the most exciting story about buying milk since... ever. It's also the one in which Riddell's illustrations shine the most, since the whimsical, oddball story lends itself well to the charmingly exaggerated black-and-white pictures.

In the story, a family has run out of milk. The mother is away at a conference, and the kids are unable to eat their Toastios... and when the dad comes back, he doesn't have milk. Why? The answer is an increasingly convoluted tale of abduction by globby green aliens, the Queen of the Pirates, piranhas, the time-trabeling Professor Steg’s Floaty-Ball-Person-Carrier, the barbaric followers of Splod, ponies, vampires, the Galactic Police, and countless other obstacles that threaten to keep him from getting home with the milk.

"Coraline" follows a girl who has recently moved into a dull new apartment, with parents who ignore her and neighbors who are either insane or boring.

A new collection from my second favorite author. Yes, I own all of these books in their original release form,yes I'm taking up valuable space for two copies, but this art!! My theory is the nor ragged a book cover looks and the more broken its spine becomes the more it has been cherished. I have cherished these stories and now I have fresh copies to fall in love with all over again.

Love, Love, Love this box set. Chris Riddell's wonderful illustrations add so much to Neil Gaiman's beautiful stories. I cannot say enough. All three stories are fabulous and typical Gaiman. They stay with you. Gaiman stories are always stories that you can reread and get something new out of each time. The illustrations are the same. Each time you view them , you notice another detail. The books are also beautiful, well made and brightly colored. The box set stands out on my bookcase and invites the eye and even the hand to visit.

My daughter read all three of these and enjoyed them. She is required to read a certain number of award nominated/winning books per semester and these were certainly more engaging and entertaining than some of the other options on the list!

What a beautiful book set! Chris Riddell's amazing line illustrations are a perfect match for Gaiman's ever-so-slightly creepy stories.

Coraline: You may have already seen the film, but this is about a little girl named Coraline, who finds a door in her house that leads to another world that is just like her own, only way more exciting. It's inhabited by copies of people who reside in Coraline's real world, and they are all created by her "Other Mother," who eventually tells Coraline that she wants her to stay with her forever. Choices, choices. What will Coraline decide to do, and what will be the consequences of those choices? And what has happened to her real parents?

Fortunately, the Milk: While aimed at a very young audience, this is a very creative book that is rather entertaining. Imagine that you go out to the store to buy milk for your kids' breakfast cereal, only your journey is filled with unexpected adventures and unusual characters that pretty much do everything in their power to keep you from getting home. Does Dad ever make it home with the milk?

The Graveyard Book: A young boy's family is murdered in their beds by a man in black, but somehow the little tyke makes it out of his house and toddles into the nearby graveyard, where he is adopted by the ghosts who live there. I loved this book. Every twist and turn in the story line was wholly unexpected and very unusual. Above all, it held my attention from start to finish.

I love all things Neil Gaiman, and I like Chris Riddell's artwork, so I thought this would be a great marriage in talent. And it is. I just wish there were more pictures. I thought it would be more illustrated. And hardback opposed to paperback. But I do like it.

Bought for my boyfriend for Christmas, he loves Neil Gaiman but hasn't read any of his stuff for kids before; we both really like the movie Coraline so I though this would be a cute gift. It's great, the art is perfect for Neil Gaiman and the stories are fun.
