About the Author
Neil Gaiman was born in Portchester, England on November 10, 1960.
He worked as a journalist and freelance writer for a time, before
deciding to try his hand at comic books. Some of his work has
appeared in publications such as Time Out, The Sunday Times, Punch
and The Observer. His first comic endeavor was the graphic novel
series The Sandman. It is the comic book he is most famous for and
the series has won every major industry award, including 9 Will
Eisner Comic Industry Awards, 3 Harvey Awards, and the 1991 World
Fantasy Award for best short story, making it the first comic ever
to win a literary award. He writes both children and adult books.
His adult books include Stardust, which won the Mythopoeic Award as
best novel for adults in 1999; American Gods, which won the Hugo,
Nebula, Bram Stoker, SFX, and Locus awards; and Anansi Boys. His
children's books include The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish;
Coraline, which won the Elizabeth Burr/Worzalla, the BSFA, the
Hugo, the Nebula, and the Bram Stoker awards; The Wolves in the
Walls; and The Graveyard Book, which won the Newbery Award in 2009.
He also co-wrote Good Omens with Terry Pratchett. He is currently
working on making a film of one of his early books,
Adam Rex received a BFA from the University of Arizona. His first
picture book, The Dirty Cowboy by Amy Timberlake, was published in
2003. His works include Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich, The True
Meaning of Smekday, and Fat Vampire.
"Gaiman''s comic timing gets a boost from strategic book design and from Rex''s hyperreal paintings, which emphasize Chu''s round, fuzzy form and apparent harmlessness. Gaiman and Rex deliver a classic one-two-three punch, making hay from the notion that a cuddly baby panda is not to be trusted."(Publishers Weekly (starred review))
