I'll swap you my dad,' I said.

'Oh-oh,' said my little sister.

What if you wanted your best friend's two goldfish so much that you'd swap anything for them, even your father?

What if your mother came home and found out what you'd done?

About The Author

Novelist Neil Gaiman has sent a British businessman tumbling into a fantastic underworld and had a devil and angel comically conspiring to thwart the Apocalypse. He found his biggest success, though, in Death, Dreams and Destruction -- and the four other similarly named siblings who controlled the reins of the human race's emotional impulses in his graphic-novel series The Sandman, a wholesale rejuvenation of graphic fiction that had everyone from Tori Amos to Norman Mailer spinning with, yes, Delirium.
Industry Reviews

"Delightful." -- Time Out New York Kids

"A bittersweet, guffaw-out-loud story from the most distinctive partnership in picture books today." -- The Guardian (UK)

"McKean is in peak form here, with dark, spiky graphics that somehow manage to convey both sweetness and menace." -- Washington Post

"An energetic, eye-catching volume." -- Publishers Weekly

"Leave it to Neil Gaiman to write a zany tale that's swimmingly good." -- The Washington Missourian
