Do you know a Little Delirium or a Little Destruction? If so, it’s time to break out THE LITTLE ENDLESS STORYBOOK and DELIRIUM’S PARTY: A Little Endless Storybook by Jill Thompson.

Multiple Eisner award-winning writer/artist Jill Thompson’s all ages storybooks feature the diminutive versions of The Endless, (siblings Delirium, Despair, Dream, Destruction, Desire, Destiny and Death) from Neil Gaiman’s THE SANDMAN mythos. Each is brought to life through her fanciful prose and vibrant watercolors.

Your favorite characters from THE SANDMAN just might be the perfect book to read as you tuck your little one into bed. Who better than Little Dream to pop into their favorite bedtime story! This installment of 25 Days of Sandman is for kids of all ages!

Check out the group “photo” in the gallery above and if you don’t already own them or this is the first you’ve heard of them, now is the ideal time to pick up copies.

THE LITTLE ENDLESS STORYBOOK starts it all as Delirium and her pet dog Barnabas misplace each other! The search is on as Barnabas visits each sibling to track Little Delirium. Where will she turn up? Even Little Merv Pumpkinhead has an appearance in this fantastical tale full of fun!

DELIRIUM’S PARTY: A Little Endless Storybook brings all the Endless siblings together in an effort to break Despair of her unhappiness. The touching and whimsical story is an extravaganza that will delight readers of all ages. The festivities turn as outrageous and unpredictable as Little Delirium's haircolor.

Check back in Monday as we continue to count down to Neil Gaiman’s new bimonthly miniseries THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE, arriving on October 30th. For more about The Endless (in their adult incarnations), take a look at our previous post, Meet the Endless.
