Blueberry Girl

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Review

This is a prayer for a blueberry girl . . .

A much-loved baby grows into a young woman: brave, adventurous, and lucky. Exploring, travelling, bathed in sunshine and surrounded by the wonders of the world. The poetic text represents what every new parent or parent-to-be dreams of for her child, and what every girl may dream of for herself.

Written by Neil Gaiman for the birth of his friend Tori Amos’ daughter, this wonderful, winsome and heartwarming poem is an inspiring read for any child. Reassuring the reader that they can be whatever they want to be as long as magic, imagination and kindness are applied, the pages of this gorgeous picture book explode with Charles Vess’ fairy tale illustrations.

A perfect book to gift to new parents – and especially for Gaiman or Amos fans!
