From New York Times bestselling and Newbery Medal-winning author Neil Gaiman comes an affirming poem for unconventional, powerful, growing daughters at any age.

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

Neil Gaiman and beloved illustrator Charles Vess turn a wish for a new daughter into a book that celebrates the glory of growing up: a perfect gift for girls embarking on all the journeys of life, for their parents, and for everyone who loves them.

This beautiful picture book is a lovely graduation or baby shower gift.

Neil Gaiman is the #1New York Timesbestselling author of more than twenty books, and is the recipient of numerous literary honors. Originally from England, he now lives in America.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful prayer for the Blueberry Girl in us all "Ladies of light and ladies of darkness and ladies of never-you-mind, This is a prayer for a blueberry girl." Written for his good friend, musician Tori Amos when she was pregnant with her daughter, Neil Gaiman has spun a beautiful poem which speaks to the expectations of new parents, and the dreams of the next generation. Charles Vess' illustrations are light and dreamy as we watch the little girl with red hair and her friends find their way in the world. This is the perfect book for expecting parents, new parents or even as a graduation gift.
