M is for Magic is the most recent book that I have read written by Neil Gaiman. You can read about the author here, if you’d like. Anyway, this book I think I found in the children’s section. I don’t think it should have been there at all. At best, this should be labeled as a Young Adult book. Most of the topics in the book are too scary or to mature for a child under 12 to enjoy or even be allowed to read about. I may be more conservative in what I want children to read than some, so use your own discretion.
M is for Magic is a series of short stories with silly children’s topics, like Humpty Dumpty, or a troll under the bridge. Gaiman takes the traditional story and twists it into a scary story with elements of the original. Most of the stories are well-written, but a few I thought were bad all around. It may be possible that I do not like Gaiman as an author as much as I thought. This book gets 2 out of 3 stars; but only because it was supposed to be a children’s book. For an adult reader, I would give it 3 stars.
