Obviously this collection is a great buy. It has three very different yet awesome stories, and some very gorgeous illustrations by Chris Riddle. I'm thrilled to own a copy.

I even wrote a more detailed review about the stories in it, but now, two months later, it's disappeared. That should teach me to backup reviews, but in this case I spent quite some time writing and it was all for nothing.

Instead I should have found a book to read.

But, never mind that.. The collection is great. And one I'll

Illustrations can make or break a book's experience -- good ones will enhance the book's atmosphere, and bad ones will wreck your ability to envision what the author describes.

Fortunately, Neil Gaiman has connected with some great illustrators over the years. And one of the illustrators who best works with Gaiman is Chris Riddell, who has illustrated the three books in this collection: the whimsical "Fortunately the Milk," eerie children's horror story "Coraline," and the elegant, gothic "The Gr

Fortunately, the milk
"After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world" (P. Pullman) and Fortunately, the milk is exactly the kind of book that reminds us of how stories are wonderful.
It's a children's book that you enjoy even when you're not a children anymore. For me it was impossible reading it without a big grin on my face and Chris Rhiddell's illustration are just perfect and make the story even more engrossing.
Reading this book it's an amazing

I absolutely adore this box set which was gifted to me by a loved one.
Gaiman is among my favourite authors, ever since I first discovered his existence by reading "Good Omens".
Riddell's drawing style is "cute", creepy and uncomplicated at the same time, and enhances the beauty of the text without overshadowing it. Actually, only "Fortunately the Milk" is fully illustrated (meaning that the text is enclosed in the drawings). "Coraline" and "The Graveyard Book" only have several drawings each but

There are three books here. Coraline is a film already and I have watched it for God knows how many times. The Graveyard Book is a story I never wanted it to finish.. Or get over.. Brilliant!

This Box Set was given to me because I was interested in getting to know Neil Gaiman's books.

I did really enjoy reading every single one of the books - however, 'Coraline' was my favorite.
It's a quite dark story for a kids book and illustrated beautifully (as well as the other two) by Chris Riddell. I liked the lesson it taught about bravery, that - in my opinion - can be summarized perfectly by the following quote

'Because', she said, 'when you're scared but you still do it anyway, that's brave.

Ich mag die Zeichnungen Riddells in den drei Büchern. "Fortunately the Milk" ist am üppigsten illustriert, in den anderen beiden Büchern leiten die Bilder die Kapitel ein. Die Zeichnungen, die die Charaktere bzw. Szenen in meinen Augen wunderbar aufgreifen, sind jeweils nur auf dem Cover coloriert, ansonsten schwarz-weiß.

Gelesen am 03.10.2016 habe ich nur zwei der drei Bücher, da ich "The Graveyard Book" vor nicht allzu langer Zeit bereits in einer vollständigen Lesung von Neil Gaiman gehört ha

Neil has been one of my favorite authors for a while, but I had somehow never read any of these. I got this boxed set for my birthday from a friend who saw it on my wishlist. "Coraline" is great; I had seen the movie, but the book is better! "Fortunately, the Milk" is imaginative and has great illustrations. "The Graveyard Book" has some great bad guys, but is also very poignant; I cried a little. I would recommend these books to children* and adults of all ages.

*Of course, some of these books h

The Graveyard Book: "There was a smile dancing on his lips, although it was a wary smile, for the world is a bigger place than a little graveyard on a hill; and there would be dangers in it and mysteries, new friends to make and old friends to rediscover, mistakes to be made and many paths to be walked before he would, finally, return to the graveyard....but, between now and then, there was Life; and Bod walked into it with his eyes and his heart wide open."

Like Kipling's Jungle Book. If it took

"Fortunalely the Milk: Nice crazy book for Kids and english reader beginners. There a verry detailed drawings. I like the crazy cover to, rembers me at german Bonbons (Sahne-Erdbeere). Nice Edition for collectors as well."

"Coraline: A nice Name for a brave Story. It is much better than the film. The introduction was verry intresting."

"The Graveyard Book is almoust like many shortsotrys. At the end everything fits perfectly well."

I am super excited that I won this from Freado! I have already read Fortunately The Milk, and it was hilarious. I read The Graveyard Book a few years ago, but I can't wait to reread it with the illustrations. Coraline is one that I haven't read, though I have seen the movie, so I'm anxious to see how it compares.

I didn't know if I would like the illustrations so I checked The Graveyard Book and Coraline out of the library. I love them. They add to the stories; and there aren't so many of them that they detract. These aren't graphic novels (which are great, but a whole other experience). I will be purchasing the set, which last time I checked, was on crazy sale on Amazon.

The collection is sweet, but golly is that box tight. I had the hardest time just pulling Coraline out--maybe due to my lack of nails, but still I had to open that thing wide.

I'd already read two of these books, bit the art made this purchase worthwhile.
