Blueberry Girl by Neil Gaiman. il Charles Vess.
HarperCollins Publishers: NY, 2009.

A lovely, magical prayer for a baby girl yet to be born. The sentiments are what anyone would want for their daughter: a life free of the most troublesome worries, trust in herself, wisdom to follow her own path. All said in Gaiman's lyrical way. The illustrations are beautifully romantic and fit perfectly with the poem. Animals follow the blessed girl through her adventures, going where she dreams, living life to the fullest.

Courtesy of Book Aunt, I watched a YouTube video of Gaiman reading the book before actually seeing the book. Quite a treasure, his reading is far better than I would make of it. Still, it would be a cozy book to read to a young girl, sharing love and dreams with a specific child.
