Instructions by Neil Gaiman

Instructions By Neil Gaiman, Illustrations by Charles Vess

I first read Instructions in Fragile Things, a collection of short stories and poems by Neil Gaiman. I really loved this poem. It beautifully simple, and true, and what fairy tales are made of. It is also a classic Neil Gaiman story.

Now it's going to be released as a picture book. And there is a book trailer, with the poem read by the author himself, and some of the illustrations by Charles Vess.

It's magical. That's all I can say. It needs no more words. Go watch it. Go rewatch it. I will.
