Touch the wooden gate in the wall you never saw before,
say "please" before you open the latch, go through,
walk down the path...

 
What would you do if you found yourself in a fairytale? This stunning picture book guides you through a fantasy world where anything is possible.
 
The reader is invited on a lyrical journey peopled by a cast of mythical characters, with a set of instructions that is both intriguing and reassuring. The advice for travelling through a fairytale landscape might just save you from being eaten by wolves or being lost for ever, but it is also a charming metaphor for living courageously and taking risks. The expressive and stylish prose resonates with Gaiman's distinctive voice and will captivate readers of any age.
 
Illustrated throughout with gorgeous art by Charles Vess, whose work can also be seen in Neil Gaiman's Blueberry Girl and Susanna Clarke's The Ladies of Grace Adieu.
