A magical poetry, a gift for adults and children alike that empowers.

This book has beautiful poem inside, as a gift from the author to his best friend that had recently giving birth to a baby girl. It's a truthful, funny, witty, beautiful written poem, to empower girls to live courageously and authentic. This book is written with the author's heart. I read this to my son when he was 4 years old. He loved the book.

Love this book: rhymes and pictures!

When I think of Neil Gaiman, "sweet" is not the adjective that generally comes to mind. But: this book may bring tears of sweetness to your eyes. Blueberry Girl is a blessing, or request for a blessing, for a daughter. Gaiman's requests of The Ladies shows a real care for his daughter and an understanding of how a child, a teen, a woman might feel and the problems she may encounter. Oh, and some advice on overcoming them. All done in succinct poetry. Add to that Voss' vivid drawings and you have something that my daughter and I read at bedtime almost every night. I'm thinking about getting it for a couple other, older girls I know, as well as some adult Girlfriends of mine!
