Description



Book Synopsis



"A perfect reminder to always be on the lookout for magic and wonder. Sometimes, we need those two things the most" (Brightly, citing "Books That Teach Kids What It Means to Be a Kind Person").

In this breathtaking picture book, now in paper-over-board format, Neil Gaiman's lyrical poem guides a novice traveler through the enchanted woods of a fairy tale--through lush gardens, a formidable castle, and over a perilous river--to find the way home again.

Illustrated in full color by Charles Vess, Instructions features lush images of mythical creatures, magical landscapes, and canny princesses. Its message of the value of courage, wit, and wisdom makes it a perfect gift, particularly for graduation.



From the Back Cover



Trust Dreams.
Trust your heart,
and trust your story.

A renowned storyteller whose words have transported readers to magical realms and an acclaimed illustrator of lushly imagined fairy-tale landscapes guide a traveler safely through lands unknown and yet strangely familiar . . .

. . . and home again.



Review Quotes




"Like a more impish version of Dr. Seuss's 'Oh, the Places You'll Go!" Gaiman's book offers riddling advice that could be for young or old." -- New York Times Book Review

" Young readers should relish the chimerical vision while older Gaiman fans should grasp the underlying suggestion that the compass used to navigate fairy tales can also guide us in the real world" -- Publishers Weekly

"A magical, incantatory poem. It could be instructions for a child, a writer, a newly minted adult or an elder. It strikes immediately at the place where stories live and provides a feast of archetypes. " -- Kirkus Reviews
