Library Book Review: Blueberry Girl
This is a prayer for a blueberry girl . . .
A much-loved baby grows into a young woman: brave, adventurous, and lucky. Exploring, traveling, bathed in sunshine, surrounded by the wonders of the world. What every new parent or parent-to-be dreams of for her child, what every girl dreams of for herself.
Let me go places that we've never been, trust and delight in her youth.
Nationally bestselling author Neil Gaiman wrote Blueberry Girl for a friend who was about to become the mother of a little girl. Here, he and beloved illustrator Charles Vess turn this deeply personal wish for a new daughter into a book that celebrates the glory of growing up: a perfect gift for girls embarking on all the journeys of life, for their parents, and for everyone who loves them.
Give her all these and a little bit more, gifts for a blueberry girl.
Cat picked this booked out at the library and even after reading it twice she felt no real love for it. Apparently, Gaiman is an acquired taste? I stole it for a quick read before we returned it and I thought it was delightful.
A story of wishes for a baby girl as she grows up into a woman it is beautifully written with gorgeous illustrations. What more can you ask for?
