- Full Description
This exclusive boxed set contains the British editions (with the exclusively British cover art) of three bestselling Neil Gaiman classics. In handsome paperbacks you get the Newbery Medal and Carnegie Medal winner The Graveyard Book; Coraline, from which the film was made; and Fortunately, the Milk, all illustrated by acclaimed artist Chris Riddell.
The editions of Coraline, The Graveyard Book, and Fortunately, the Milk in this box set contain the illustrations from the British editions, which are both hilarious and moving. Acclaimed artist Chris Riddell has won the Kate Greenaway Medal twice, among other awards and honors.
The art for the American editions of these books is totally different--These paperbacks have never before been available in the U.S. They are ONLY available in this special box set. Fortunately the Milk is the most profusely illustrated of the three and is probably the most kid-accessible, but both other books are excellent for most readers.
Even the highly-illustrated box is a treat. I've read two of the three books here and can do nothing but recommend them to all ages of readers. No one can write fantasy and real characters like Gaiman can.
"Riddell draws caricatures so sumptuously fanastical it feels like being given extra for free,"--Nicolette Jimes, Sunday Times, on Fortunately the Milk. The Sunday Times calls The Graveyard Book "Suspenseful, well told, and touching."
The Graveyard Book has also been adapted as a brilliant graphic novel, drawn by P. Craig Russell and others. Two volumes, available In hardcover and now, inexpensive softcovers. See our website.
