Art and writing come together in many media, but when a best-selling author and her highly esteemed husband decide to make a book blending their two crafts, the result (in this case) is something amazing. A collection of short stories and accompanying illustrations - or just as often drawings tied together with snippets of prose, depending on the story - this book's premise overshadows its content... By which I mean that it offers so many themes and genres that few of us will love every single page. On the whole, it IS amazing, and it's well worth looking at. You will very likely find something you love in here, no matter what you like in art and/or stories.

Thirteen short stories. Text by the writerly spouse, images by the imagery spouse. Sometimes it was hard to tell where one ended and the other began. Several fairy-themed stories of the darker, tricksy kind. Highly recommended for lovers of magic realism.
