The Dangerous Alphabet, by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Gris Grimly
The title itself just makes you kind of want to pick up this book, doesn't it?
So, what 's so dangerous about the alphabet? Can't it be trusted? Can't it be relied upon?
It begins with A...("A is for Always, that's where we embark...") and takes the reader on a 'piratical ghost story'...not to be missed.
