'The Thief of Always' by Clive Barker

"I want to recommend Clive Barker's The Thief of Always. It is a short read with several digestable chapters and sketches done by the author. I read a chapter a day of this book with my children this summer. It is rich with fantasy and suspense. Imagine celebrating all your favorite holidays every day, and living parent-free: This concept even seduced my childen."
