A special illustrated edition of The Ocean at the End of the Lane, the bestselling magical novel from master storyteller Neil Gaiman. Breathtaking illustrations by fine artist and illustrator, Elise Hurst. 'Both a pitch-perfect fantasy and a moving examination of childhood memories and their effects on our adult selves ... superb' The Times 'Some books you read. Some books you enjoy. But some books just swallow you up, heart and soul' Joanne Harris This is what he remembers, as he sits by the ocean at the end of the lane: A dead man on the back seat of the car, and warm milk at the farmhouse. An ancient little girl, and an old woman who saw the moon being made. A beautiful housekeeper with a monstrous smile. And dark forces woken that were best left undisturbed. They are memories hard to believe, waiting at the edge of things. The recollections of a man who thought he was lost but is now, perhaps, remembering a time when he was saved...

Gaiman's achievement is to make the fantasy world seem true * The Times * A book that reads like a half-remembered fairy tale from childhood... and slots perfectly into the canon of British magical fiction * New Statesman * The writer who comes closest to the being the Dahl of his generation... The Ocean at the End of the Lane has, like all good myths, a power that defies explanation * Sunday Express * Within a few pages you know you're reading a future classic * Stylist * told with a rare understanding of all that makes us human, and shows the power of stories to reveal and shelter us from the darkness inside and out. * Mid-West Times * This is fantasy at its very best and this book is one any Gaiman fan will proudly display on their shelf * Culturefly *
