Wouldn't it be nice if you were friends with a best-selling author and he wrote a poem for your daughter? Then, he goes one step further and publishes the poem and has the fantastic artist Charles Vess illustrate it. That would be one lucky little girl!
This is a prayer for a blueberry girl . . .
A much-loved baby grows into a young woman: brave, adventurous, and lucky. Exploring, traveling, bathed in sunshine, surrounded by the wonders of the world. What every new parent or parent-to-be dreams of for her child, what every girl dreams of for herself.
Let me go places that we've never been, trust and delight in her youth.
Nationally bestselling author Neil Gaiman wrote Blueberry Girl for a friend who was about to become the mother of a little girl. Here, he and beloved illustrator Charles Vess turn this deeply personal wish for a new daughter into a book that celebrates the glory of growing up: a perfect gift for girls embarking on all the journeys of life, for their parents, and for everyone who loves them.
Give her all these and a little bit more, gifts for a blueberry girl.
Neil Gaiman is a hit-or-miss author with me. I really liked this book, though! It was cute between the great writing and the fantastic art. I am glad I read it. Picture books are not my normal type of books, but I made an exception for Gaiman. It is worth reading!
Thanks to Harper Collins for sending me a copy of this book.
