This is a prayer for a blueberry girl...
A much-loved baby grows into a young woman: brave, adventurous and lucky. Exploring, travelling, bathed in sunshine, surrounded by the wonders of the world. What every new parent or parent-to-be dreams of for their child, what every girl dreams of for herself.
Let her go places that we've never been, trust and delight in her youth.
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 all a little bit more: gifts for a blueberry girl.
