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 readers 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.

Crazy Hair: Bonnie tries to comb the narrator's crazy hair -- where gorillas leap and tigers stalk -- and is in for a surprise in this delightful rhyming tale.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[Gaiman] performs as a consummate storyteller.”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

  • “This collection demonstrates a range of creative energy that will appeal to a wide audience. Gaiman is also a terrific performer who captivates listeners with his pleasant British voice, which is persuasively easy on the ear.”


  • “A bittersweet, guffaw-out-loud story from the most distinctive partnership in picture books today.”

    Gaurdian on The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish

  • “Gaiman does here for the older picture-book set what he did for middle-grade readers with last year’s Coraline, crafting a tale of surreal and sinister adversaries who are bested by a young girl’s determination to set her world to rights. Slyly deadpan, rich in language and wordplay.”

    Kirkus Reviews on The Wolves in the Walls

  • A 2005 Audie Award Finalist
  • Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Daniellecourtney | 2/4/2014

    " WONDERFUL! In the truest sense of the word. A perfect mental getaway while driving, and yet still brain-stimulating and fun. Makes me want to be a children's book author! The narrator is actually the author himself, so the inflections and stresses are spot on, along with the voice changes for each character. It's good to be read to. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Tim Canny | 1/31/2014

    " Some very fun short stories and a very funny poem about crazy hair, all read by the author, and an interview with Neil conducted by one of his daughters. Great for a light pick-me up listen or for listening with your kids. "
