Blueberry Girl

Neil Gaiman’s latest picture book isn’t really for children. It’s about children. It’s about having a baby, and what you wish for the baby’s future. Neil wrote it for a friend, who was pregnant with a daughter, and then things developed and the private ‘poem’ turned into another book, with illustrations by Charles Vess.

The pictures are nicely sweet and romantic in a modern Elsa Beskow kind of way. The thoughts on what a parent would want for their unborn child are inspiring, and this would be perfect for any expectant adults.
