Rated 5 out of 5 by from M is for Magic. Everything Neil touches turns to gold! An excellent collection of short stories for youth. Its got trolls, an evil jack-in-the-box, a seriously tough kitty and more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic gaiman Neil gaiman has a way with blending what is and what could be. The various shorts here are a great example of this. A humpty dumpty whodunnit, how to eat a phoenix, a life eating troll and 'tourists' and teenagers stir trouble. M is indeed for magic in this collection.
