    A reviewer

    M IS FOR MAGIC is a collection of eleven short stories. This book was geared for elementary/middle school but I thought that I couldn't read many of the stories aloud in my classroom because some of the themes are pretty adult. I liked many of the stories, especially THE WITCH'S HEADSTONE. This was a story about a real boy who was living in a graveyard and being raised by ghosts. He decides to do a very kind thing for a ghost who didn't get a gravestone and the story follows the adventure that goes with that decision. I also enjoyed THE CASE OF FOUR AND TWENTY BLACKBIRDS. It was a detective story set with nursery rhyme characters. The detective needs to solve the mystery of who killed Humpty Dumpty. It is told with attitude and is very funny. There are also stories that are scary or just plain creepy. The story about the jack-in-the-box just gave me chills. So if you want to read some good, strange stories that only take about an hour to read, check this book out. **Reviewed by: Marta Morrison

    Pockets of this book was not fit for children. But all of the short stories were well-written. There is no question about it. I recomend it to kids 12+.

    Compilation of peculiar short stories told in the typical ┬┐Neil

    Compilation of peculiar short stories told in the typical “Neil Gaiman” style, these two are the same as that of Fragile Things. 




    I love it.

    Surprises!

    However short each tale is, they all surprise in that special Neil Gaiman way that never gets old. There's even a chapter from his "Graveyard Book" in here. Definitely a must for anyone that likes unexpected surprises.
