Instructions by Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess
Instructions is a poem about what to do if you find yourself inside a fairytale. "Trust dreams. Trust your heart, and trust your story." Illustrations by Charles Vess give it the look of a classic. It would make a good gift for someone embarking on a journey: starting school; graduating; moving to a new job or city; getting married or having a child. It is suitable for readers of all ages.
A lovely recording of Gaiman reading the book, complete with Vess's artwork, is available here.
