Greetings all, the Empress here, coming to you from Disney World in Orlando, FL, where I’ve been enjoying a 6-day vacation here with The Niece. I brought my little angel here to celebrate her 15th birthday and although she’s practically grown up now (and looks it, too), she’s still my baby (and is letting me baby her too).
Why do I bring this up on a post about Neil Gaiman‘s latest release, The Graveyard Book being on sale today? Because on every birthday since her 11th one, I’ve given her an autographed copy of a Neil Gaiman book as part of her gift (this was 2005’s gift – Wolves in the Walls). So after we do some rides at Disney’s Hollywood Studios today, in the spirit of tradition, we’re going to head to Downtown Disney to get our copies of The Graveyard Book.
Unfortunately, in order to be on this lovely vacation, we had to miss Gaiman’s book signing in NYC tonight. To comfort ourselves, I might have to also purchase the The Graveyard Book audio CD, as read by Neil Gaiman himself — always a great treat!
Check out the official synopsis of the book here below, as well as a widget, which has a link to Gaiman reading Chapter 1 from the audio book.
