I can add this book to the list of things not to read while home alone at night. Which I did.
For a children's book, this was really creepy, at least to me. I couldn't believe at the end when Neil Gaiman said he read this to his six-year-old. I would have been up the entire night. What, can I say, I have a very active imagination. I'd like to see the movie at some point, I remember being interested in the previews I saw.
