  • Humpty Dumpty's sister hires a private detective to investigate her brother's death.
  • A teenage boy who has trouble talking to girls finds himself at a rather unusual party.
  • A boy raised in a graveyard makes a discovery, and confronts the much more troubling world of the living.
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 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.
