Book Description

4 May 2011 The Sandman
Written by JILL THOMPSON Art and cover by JILL THOMPSON "Incredibly endearing art makes this picture book a page-turner . . . cute, but not without the edge that one expects from The Sandman line. The story is funny and appealing in itself, yet it incorporates enough insider jokes to gratify Sandman fans." - BOOKLIST "An endearing and heartfelt story, much like Owly, and should prove to be a welcome addition to any Sandman fan's library." - IGN A new printing of the classic tale of The Endless from acclaimed writer/artist Jill Thompson! The story begins once upon a time, when Little Delirium was lost. Her protector and puppy Barnabas searched the waking world for his tiny princess to no avail. Now, Barnabas must travel to the strange realms of each of The Endless to see if Delirium's siblings have seen their missing sister. Cameos by The Sandman, Desire and the rest of the Endless family make this a must-have for any Sandman fan. On sale MARCH 9 - 64 pg, FC

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, silly and fun 19 Dec 2006
Format:Hardcover
This book is wonderful. It means I can share the world of Delerium, Dream, Death and the rest of the Endless with my two year old daughter. She loves the gorgeous illustrations, the language and the silly story, as do I. If you are a Sandman fan who wants to enjoy reading something fun with your children, I recommend this book without reservation.

Be under no disillusionment. This despite the disclaimer attached to all Vertigo catalogues that: "All Titles are suggested for mature readers" is a children’s book. Although a delightfully obscure one.
What you are buying here is a selections of illustrations of Jill Thompson’s "Lil' Endless" (from The Parliament of Rooks Story from Sandman 4) tied together by a pretty week plot about Barnabas trying to find Delirium (presumably an alternative telling of the b-story of Sandman 9 or an new story based upon it.)
If you like so many of us fell in love with Jill Thompson’s child-like interpretations of the Endless this book is worth it for the superbly abstract illustrations, if not its not even close to worth the price.
Weather Jill Thompson is exploiting her involvement with the Sandman beyond that the palatable is a whole new debate.

4.0 out of 5 stars In search of Delirium 21 Feb 2012
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
One of the most brilliant things that Neil Gaiman ever produced was the Endless, a ruling family of embodied forces -- Dream, Despair, Desire, Delirium, Destruction, Destiny and Death.

But have you ever imagined what they would look like as chibi figures?

Me neither. But apparently Jill Thomas has, which resulted in charmingly oddball picture books aimed at children, starring teeny pumpkin-headed versions of the Endless we know and love (or, in some cases, hate). Obviously "The Little Endless Storybook" is a light marshmallow puff compared to Gaiman's darker, more mature stories, but it's still very cute.

The story focuses on Barnabas, a little dog who takes care of the flighty, flaky Delirium in her psychedelic realm. But when he leaves her alone for a few minutes, Delirium vanishes -- and Barnabas is unable to find his charge. Even worse, a mysterious Thing is following him wherever he goes.

So he decides to ask Delirium's various siblings if they know where she is, and finds himself on a quest through the various realms of the Endless -- the weird world of Dream, the squishy red domain of Desire, the grey mirrored realm of Despair, the hilltop of Destruction, the mazed garden of Destiny, and Death's very pink living room. Will he find his acid-haired charge? And why do the Endless keep giving him charms?

One thing that does confuse me a little is who "The Little Endless Storybook" is aimed at. Jill Thompson's art and writing are clearly aimed at children... but those children will probably not have read the Sandman books or heard of the Endless before.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great little book! 2 Aug 2005
By "jayeandy" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Much to the surprise of friends who were more heavily into this sort of thing than I was, I really liked the Sandman comics. I was never a completist or anything, but I bought a number of the comics and grahphic novels, and even went to a Halloween party as Sandman one year. Something about The Endless always appealed to me. However, I was not enough of a fan that I was familiar with the "Little Endless" until I stumbled across this delightful book. If there was every a book made for me, this is it. I have always loved the "super-deformed" artwork style used in manga and anime, and the the author uses it in a way that is truly inspired.
The book tells the story of Barnabas, a little dog who is charged with the care of Delirium, lest she wander off. (This apparently is a common occurrence.) Sure enough, she disappears one day, and Barnabas goes off to find her, asking each of her siblings in turn if they have seen her. The book reaches a charming and satisfying conclusion, although you know poor Barnabas will always have his work cut out for him.
The "Little Endless," as these versions of the characters are known, are apparently in high demand by fans of the author's artwork, and I can see why. The book is well-written and superbly illustrated. Jill Thompson has managed to stay true to the feeling of the world of the Sandman comics, but at the same time produce a warm, cute fairy tale. I might hesitate to recommend this book to small children - there is just enough of the Sandman darkness here to elicit some uncomfortable questions from very young readers - but mature kids of perhaps 10 or older will do just fine. As for older readers, fans of the Sandman comics, manga, graphic novels, and fantasy in general will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like the Endless (and have a sense of humor) 22 Feb 2005
By Robert Walker-Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This was a refreshing little goblet of Endless

sorbet - a palate cleanser between courses,

one might say.

I wouldn't read it to my son as a bedtime story -

well, not just yet. Why does the naked fat woman

have rats in her hair? Hmmmm. . . . good question.

The characters are mostly in character, and the artwork

is a constant delight. Destruction is just a hoot!

I'm still a little Morpheocentric in my approach to

Endless stories, and this is an ensemble piece - so

if I can enjoy it, well. If you're a Deliriophile,

this will rock your candy-colored inside-out boat made

of popsickle sticks and that funny feeling you get inside

your head when you can't remember the name of the color

you think of when you taste the same kind of fruit soda

you were drinking on the sidewalk the day you. . .

ummmm, where was I was I again?

Get it, read it, share it, love it. Spoiler -

it has a happy ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars For the collector 26 Jun 2006
By Duncan Shields - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Got a friend that thinks Sandman is too dark? Or maybe someone who likes the darkness but will appreciate the tongue in cheek cuteness of this little gem? The little endless, in the fine tradition of Muppet Babies and Alvin and the Chipmunks, creates a nice little children's story involving the Endless. Destiny, Dream, Delirium (nee Delight), Death, Desire, Despair and Destruction are all represented here. It's cute and it's good.

I got this as a gift for my niece because my daughter loved these boos so much as a little girl. When my daughter would babysit said niece she loved it. Now she will have her very own copy. I can't wait for here to open her present.
