I finished this book around the midnight hour and after I read the last page, I yelled, “More! More! More!”. Gaiman has the most vivid imagination of any writer today. His books always makes the reader yearning for his next novel. This book takes place Sussex, England, where the narrator, a middle aged man, tells the magical story of his youth. We are told about a nasty nanny, dangerous bird like creatures and an unusual family who has an ocean on their farm.
