Sunday Uplift - Blueberry Girl

"I have seen landscapes...which, under a particular light, made me feel that at any moment a giant might raise his head over the next ridge.
Nature has that in her which compels us to invent giants; and only giants will do."

- C.S. Lewis
Here is a lovely animated version of the beautiful poem "Blueberry Girl," written by the always wonderful Neil Gaiman, and illustrated by the masterful Charles Vess. The entire book can be seen and read at Harper-Collins Children's Books.

Mr. Vess has illustrated another wonderful Gaiman poem, Instructions (on how to survive a fairy tale), due out in March 2010. A fantabulous preview of the illustrations, with a marvelous glimpse of his process can be seen on Vess's Greenman Press site.
