I had never heard of the author Neil Gaiman until a few weeks ago. In a blog post I came across a link to his commencement address to the University of the Arts class of 2012. I found it a delightful and inspiring speech. I looked up his list of publications and, while I'd never read anything of his, I had seen the movie Coraline, which I liked. So, I went to the library and just looked for anything of his on the shelves. I ended up with three books, all of which I liked: The Graveyard Book, Odd and the Frost Giants, and The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish. The first two are young adult fiction and the last is a children's picture book.
