Neil Gaiman – graphic novels, novels poems

I was lucky enough to attend the CBCA Conference in Melbourne last weekend and one of the standout speakers was British author Neil Gaiman. Many fans had booked in just for his session and the queue for book signings was probably the longest of the day. Whilst being famous for his dark and quirky graphic novels, he held us spellbound with his poetry readings of new takes on well-loved fairy stories. Try the story of Sleeping Beauty from the point of view of the fairy godmother who wasn’t invited to the christening, or Goldilocks through the eyes of a two year old. Fabulous!

Check out three of these poems on Fiction Focus
