This book is perfect for girls of any age. (In fact, I might just buy a few to keep on hand for birthdays...) Filled with wishes, wisdom and adventure, Blueberry Girl is not your average children's book. At its heart, it's a kind of blessing.
"Let her tell stories and dance in the rain, somersault, tumble and run/Her joys must be high as her sorrow are deep. Let her grow like a weed in the sun."
The gorgeous illustrations by Charles Vess are like a beautiful map to accompany Gaiman's lyrical journey. It really is the kind of book that sets your heart racing a bit, because you know you've found something special. Here's hoping my own little Blueberry Girl enjoys this book as much as her Mama.
