Master storyteller Neil Gaiman presents a breathtaking collection of tales for younger readers that may chill or amuse, but that always embrace the unexpected. Humpty Dumpty's sister hires a private detective to investigate her brother's death. A teenage boy who has trouble talking to girls finds himself at a rather unusual party. A boy raised in a graveyard makes a discovery, and confronts the much more troubling world of the living. Illustrated by Teddy Kristiansen (b&w).
