A special illustrated edition of the stunningly original and brilliant tale of London Below from storytelling genius Neil Gaiman and Children's Laureate Chris Riddell. This beautiful edition is like no other, featuring the fully illustrated short story, How the Marquis Got His Coat Back, and will delight fans of Coraline, Philip Pullman and Doctor Who.

If you like Neil Gaiman you might also like to read books by Clive Barker, Ray Bradbury and Michael Marshall Smith.

Synopsis

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Discover NEVERWHERE, Neil Gaiman's extraordinary modern classic, illustrated for the first time with breathtaking pictures by Children's Laureate Chris Riddell. Under the streets of London lies a world most people could never dream of. When Richard Mayhew helps a mysterious girl he finds bleeding on the pavement, his boring life changes in an instant. Her name is Door, she's on the run from two assassins in black suits and she comes from London Below. His act of kindness leads him to a place filled with monsters and angels, a Beast in a labyrinth and an Earl who holds Court in a Tube train. It is strangely familiar yet utterly bizarre.

Reviews
