Four of beloved author Neil Gaiman's delightfully scary, strange, and hilarious children's tales read by the author, now available unabridged. This collection includes: "The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish" An unforgettable story that will take listeners on a journey into the murky mind of a young boy and the perils of striking a bargain. "The Wolves in the Walls" Lucy is sure there are wolves living in the walls of their house, and, as everybody says, if the wolves come out of the walls, it's all over. Her family doesn't believe her. Then one day the wolves come out. "Cinnamon" This charming fable of an exotic princess who refuses to speak currently exists only on Neil's official website and has never been published in print or any other format.
