It's always nice to realize you like someone you never knew existed. Neil Gaiman. Apparently he's quite prolific. He writes for kids and adults alike, and is both funny and original. I just finished The Graveyard Book--delightful. And it has illustrations, which is fun and not childish at all. Sometimes I just like to look at pictures. Actually this book is in the kid's section, but like all great children's works adults can get a lot out of it too, even if it's the nostaligic sense of being a kid again.
